Rick was an amazing man and I truly valued our friendship. We worked together for 35+ years and I have such great memories. Rick was full of joy, always kind, trustworthy, reliable, and willing to help anyone whenever needed. It's hard to believe Rick is longer with us, but I find peace knowing Rick is with his savior and no longer suffering. And we will see Rick again! Karen and family, we pray God will hold you up and sustain you with His Love.

I have known Rick for 20+ years. I really enjoyed our talks, fixing world issues and general good dialog. Like getting Karen on an allowance. (still makes me laugh) Rick was full of life, and rejoiced in God. You knew when Rick was there, a level head and common sense would be there too. I miss our calls, even if they were not as often as in the past. Our prayers go to Karen and the whole family, Rick will be missed. Mary and Phil Barnhill

I have struggled with the words I want to say here. Rick was so full of life and God's gift of humility. He always helped others in any way he could,even if it was a kind word or prayer. In fact I'm sure he prayed for everyone he knew whether they knew that or not. Working with him at church over the past 9 years he always managed to make me smile and laugh no matter how I was feeling. And of course was there to help out wherever needed. I miss you Rick you're the older brother I never wanted but always needed. See you later.. Love ya

I will always remember our breakfasts and dinners together where we lifted up the name of Jesus and just generally laughed and always ate too much. Often the waitress would ask us if we were ready for lunch since we had been there so long.

The hospitality they exhibited to everyone always glorified the Lord. I will miss sitting under the gazebo (?) at 11:00 pm after Foundations teachings and just enjoying our time together hearing Rick make jokes and entertain us with his joy

See you one day Mr Rick. Save us a place!!!!

My condolences to Karen and family. I always enjoyed working with Rick at Keysight Technologies. He had a great sense of humor and was always ready to help you with your request/problem. He will truly be missed.

Warm regards,

Rick was such a warm-hearted person. You two were such a beautiful couple. Rick had so much love to give, especially to everyone that walked through the doors of N3C; as I’m sure that was the same for everyone he met. He is in heaven now smiling and loving on God and Jesus; and They are loving on him because They are so proud of the beautiful person he was. My heart and prayers go out to you, Karen and his family. He will be greatly missed.

Rick was a terrific asset to Keysight Technologies (and Agilent and HP), but more than that, he was a terrific coworker. He knew everyone's name and always had a smile and a kind word whenever we saw each other. I'll always remember that smile.
