I know that everyone that had worked with him or had known him is sad and heartbroken right now. We just lost a good person that brought a lot of smiles, warmth, and zest. He will surely be missed.

I pray that everyone dearest to him will have "PEACE that surpasses all understanding." -Philippians 4:7

"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."

Psalm 34:18

Mr. Riddick, you will be missed my friend, you were a kind and caring person who I had the pleasure of knowing and working with always the consummate professional. You cared for your patients with dignity and the utmost respect I tip my hat to you, Sir. We met when you started working at Old Vinyard. We had some busy nights together but we always made it through unscathed. My condolences to the Riddick Family. Rest in peace Dude

Dear Anna and Family,

I am so sad for you all at this time. I have no words that will take the pain away in your heart but please know I shall pray for you all at this truly sad time in your lives.

Duane was always so welcome at our home and past family gatherings. Always was good for wonderful conversation and laughter.

I am so thankful he became my hubby's best mate and that they shared a lot of things together over the years, namely their nursing course, they held each other up as they made their way through and then to spread their wings in their respective jobs.

He will always hold a special place in our hearts and will truly be sadly missed.

Our love and prayers to you all.

God Bless.

I had the honor of having Riddick as my partner every Friday night. From our first shift together he took me under his protective wing. I will miss his guidance, his special coffee, his dry sense of humor and most of all the special love and caring that he had for us all.

Riddick, my friend I know that you carried your Jimmy Buffet Thermos and plenty of sandwiches to share with the other angels in heaven. Until I see you again I send you all of my love. Save me a sandwich.

Words can not express what an honor and blessing it was to have crossed Riddick's path. Riddick was a kind soul that offered a helping hand whenever he could and even a joke to keep you going. Riddick always gave 200% at work. Therefore, I want to Thank Riddick for all the help he gave me at work and for providing his famous coffee. He was a true gentleman and coworker. May peace be with you and your family.
