Rick S. Habecker passed away May 1, 2018, at the age of 61. He was born in New Haven, Connecticut. He lived in Johnson City, Texas as a very young child, but spent the majority of his life in Pflugerville and Austin. He is a graduate of Pflugerville High School (class of ’75), and obtained his Associate in Applied Science from Central Texas College. He had experience in a variety of professions, but his expertise was in law enforcement and legal work. He was a basic peace officer graduate of the Travis County Sheriff’s Academy and served at the Travis County Courthouse. He also obtained certification as a paralegal from The University of Texas in Austin, and has worked in that profession for the past twenty-three years.

Rick leaves behind his wife of 30 years, Christy, and two daughters, Heather and Heidi, and his son-in-law Paul and beloved grandson Baldur. Also surviving him are three brothers and two sisters, and many nieces and nephews. He will be remembered as a generous man, and he was always quick to lend a helping hand wherever needed.

He had an incredibly strong work ethic, and always strived to do his best in whatever position he was in or whatever task was at hand, both in his job and around the home. However, the single most important thing to him was his faith in God and his desire to reach others through biblical teaching. For the past several years, he has written a blog, christinhistory.com, to express his deep faith and commitment to the Lord.

A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, May 8 at 3:30 at Cook Walden Chapel of the Hills.

I am shocked and saddened by this news. Sending my deepest condolences to the Habecker family. I had the privilege of working with Rick for many years, he did process serving for me. Always dependable and trustworthy, I knew once I gave the job to Rick it was as good as done. Rick was a kind and gentle soul. I will miss him dearly.

Ricky was in my math classes in 1970-73 school years at Pflugerville High School. I have wonderful memories of his sense of humor, his big smile and his fun personality. I pray the family may be held in God's loving arms as they heal from their loss and lean on their wonderful memories of Ricky and all his good works. God is Good all the Time. All the Time God is Good.
May God Continue to Bless You and Your Family.

Christy, I struggle to find the right words to express how sorry I am that you are going through this painful time. As the years have gone by since my retirement, I know we have not been in touch very much, but that dosen't mean I don't think of you often and miss our friendship. Please know that I am praying for you at this time. Hold tight to all the good memories of Rick and remember with fondness the time you had together. I love you, and it will get better in time.

My sincere sympathy to the family of Rickie. I was a class mate with him at Pflugerville High School and have fond memories of his laughter and his good nature. More recently I have enjoyed his blogs and facebook posts. May you feel the comfort of Jesus through warm memories of this brother in Christ.
Thoughts and Prayers for you all,

Rick and Christy have been my neighbor for many years, our two families are the long time homeowners.

After my husband passed away I felt secure knowing that someone like Rick and Christy were next door. I know I didn't reach out after my husband passed away, but I knew Rick and Christy were there.

Rick always kept his yard pristine, he and Christy enjoyed working in the yard together as one. I would brag on his yard to my friends.

Rick kept an eye out on his neighbors, like helping Linda with her yard. I was not able to backup my trailer into my driveway, he saw my struggle and he hopped in and did it like Ken used to.

He cut Limbs for neighbors. He called me at work when my Little Chiwahaa Princess got out of the fence not once but twice. She would lay in the the street and Rick would wait outside for me to get home.
He and Christy helping me when I found snakes in my yard, scared me so bad.
When I would ask him question he would give me wise advice, it was mostly about my yard.

He was funny and well liked and a joy to be around. When we had our block BBQ parties, Rick would be laughing and having a good time. Rick is going to be missed by everyone on Rainbow Bridge

The one comforting thought I have Rick with Jesus in Heaven. He was a believer, he was a very good Christian man, I know he to be a good husband,Father and friend.

Christy I know your pain. I know what you must be feeling. There is one assurance Rick is and will always be with you in your dreams and will remain in your heart untill you see him again.

Know this Christy, I am here for you if you need to talk or need anything you might need.
