Memories Timeline


  1. Rick was not only my business partner, he was my mentor, father figure and friend for 50 years. I just had one hole in my heart repaired and now I have another. I am gonna miss you buddy!. Kathy, may the Lord wrap his arms around you and your family in this time of sorrow and give you peace. We know he is in heaven with our heavenly Father and as you know, you will see him again one day and you will be together for eternity! Prayers going up!!

  2. Rick was the best brother-in-law you could ask for. Always kind and patient. His soft blue eyes were an indication that his heart was always gentle when talking with everyone. He loved his family and his lord and savior.
    Kathy please know he loved you with all his heart. We are here for you when you need us. Our prayers for you and the entire family as you venture on to continue your work here on earth, knowing one day you will be with Rick again.
    Love and prayers
    Ceil and Carl.

  3. Rick was a great mentor to many of us who had the honor of knowing him and working with him. We will all miss him dearly

  4. It was such a great pleasure knowing Rick. I was his insurance agent for the past 13 years. I enjoyed our visits. He was one of the most generous and kind men I’ve ever met.. may he rest in peace. My heartfelt condolences to Kathy, Albert and his family.
