I remember Rick sliding his Trans Am into a parking space in the teachers' parking lot, between two other cars. Just one of the times he made high school more interesting.

Rick and I were a year apart. He was my best friend as well as my cousin. We did alot a fun things when we were little. We would catch horny toads on the rock pile at the end of the gravel road at Grandma and Grandpa's old house. The best thing I can think of is going to the sac-n-pac riding in the back of Grandpa's truck just so we could get a bottle of big red soda and a pint of vanilla ice cream! I miss you so very much.

So many memories of you Rick...I can't wrap my brain around all this. Your big smile and infectious laughter will always be in my heart. You were like my big brother, cause for real I practically lived in your mom and dads house growing up. I think the funniest memory was the time you begged my mom to go for a ride in that black Trans Am, and when she got in the car you turned on Bad To Bone, has loud as it would go, just looked and her, laughed and said Lets roll.....good times.

Rick taught me how to work in an office when hired on at ROW from a field job. He was a very patient teacher...and became a very close friend. Sincerest sympathy to his family.

I worked with Rick everyday for the past 1.5 years. I have never met someone more genuine in my life. He always put others first. That includes clients, co workers and above all else his family. During lunch we always talked about how much he loved his wife and his children and his grand daughter. My heart is broken for you all. I will be praying for your peace. ❤️
