Rick had the most gigantic heart. He made me smile and laugh every time I talked to him. Always upbeat and willing to help. I will miss hearing him talk about the ranch with such enthusiasm and hearing about all the furry lives he was planning to save. You made such a difference in this world and in my life. No matter what, I will always think of Rick when it comes to saving an animal. We will always miss you Rick!

I am still in stunned disbelief that you are no longer here. We have been such a huge part of each other's lives for 38 years. We shared a life, a home & so many good memories. You were a great man, with one of the biggest, kindest hearts I've ever known. I know that Zeb was there to greet you, which brings me some comfort. I will forever miss hearing your voice & wonderful laugh. Part of my heart is going with you. You are loved and missed more than you could ever know. Until we see each other again, Rest in Peace, my dear friend!

Cousin Rick -
I have fond memories of our holidays as a young kid and the fun we had with you, Jeff & Rob. Say 'hi' to Agnes and my parents from up there. Love you,
Cousin Jack

Rick our family will never be the same. You always found something for us to do to help with your rescue teaching us the ropes and showing us your love everyday. We will forever miss your kind heart. You always made me laugh and working for you was always a pleasure. I still cant believe your gone. I hope to see your dreams come true with your rescue facility in Acton I know how long you have waited for this. If I can I will be happy to volunteer my time to help in anyway possible. My condolences to your family and friends. I am sorry for your loss.

My Dear Friend Rick - We are going to miss you so much. Our hearts are heavy with losing you. The "critters" (as we called them), have lost their greatest Champion. I am grateful to God for sharing you with us...but selfish enough to wish you could have stayed, because you meant so much to me and our Family. Thank you you for always being there...for being a mentor to my son and for being the bright light in a dark world. We are going to miss you more than words can say. We will love you always, and promise to pay forward your wonderful in peace, my Friend..

I was so saddened to read that Rick passed away. I never met him in person but communicated with him about the kittens he rescued and hand fed throughout many night to save them. I admire his dedication to those who could not care for themselves until he gave them a chance. May he RIP. Sorry for your loss, he was a good man, kind to animals.
