Rick married Alice Morris in 1973, they had a son and Daughter. He was the proudest dad, he took great pride in his children’s accomplishments, the fact that they were kind and caring, with many childhood friends that continue to be part of our extended family, I guess the apples don’t fall far from the tree!
Rick leaves family and friends with memories of his blue eyes, big smile, and outgoing personality. Always there with a helping hand and kind word.
Rick was the love of my life for 49 years of marriage. It was a relationship filled with joy, respect and trust and arguments that when settled with a hug and kiss made the relationship even closer.
Rick all of us that love you wish you peace. Watch over us, I know a lot to ask, but we know if anyone, you are up to the task

What a simple way to honor him. So many people struggle, that just need to know someone cares. A smile, hug, conversation, so many possibilities.
Our hope is that our loss brings so many people a very happy reunion.
