Worked with Rick for the last four years at Raymond. He was always the go to guy for information when you needed it and always accommodated. Left us a lot of great memories and stories. I know he is somewhere looking down on us and enjoying a Jersey Mike's #13. Rest easy Rick, we will never forget you. My condolences to his family.

I knew Rick from work. He was a decent, stand up man with a great deal of knowledge to share. Very likable easy going person, I wish I had gotten to know him more. Rest easy my friend, your legacy is secured by those who loved and respected you.

To Rick's family, I will always remember him as never being afraid to try something new; whether it was building a house, relocating to another state, starting a new job venture, or building a race car. He was a self-taught innovator and an awesome fabricator. Rick was a calming, patient influence to be around at the race track, and we had some great times together. So sorry for you loss and hoping that the good memories will sustain you at this difficult time.

Rick gave me detailed product training during my first few days at Raymond back in January 2012. Since then, though I'm not based in Greene, I looked forward to every chance to talk with him. He had great patience, taking the time to explain any complex concept in detail. He was always warm, and had a calm demeanor that made him comfortable to be around. His dedication and commitment to the company and all associates was exemplary. His courage was a model for all of us. He will be greatly missed.
