I'll always remember on the weekends when we didn't have school we always stayed up late and hung out with dad. He let us play darts on his fancy dart board that had lights and all. We jammed out to music, and of course he had to show us a few of his break dancing moves. 😂
He was the best dad and the only dad I ever knew! I'll forever miss you Richard! I love you more then anything. Watch over all your family while your up there, and tell pawpaw I miss him too. ❤️

One of my most favorite memories of Rick was when I was maybe 7 or 8 and his brother Doug let me me drive his 4wheeler except I pushed the gas all the way down and we stood straight up in the air and all you could hear is Rick laughing his butt off at us
