We will never forget when we first met them , Brady was just about 4 years old, we watch him grow into a handsome young man .and a great drummer. Ernest said he will never forget all good times him and Rick had togeather , They would stay up all night making music and having a few beers Lol . Rick and Ernest love to hunt togeather, Ernest said he will always miss his special friend, we will continue to pray for Terrie, Brady and family for peace and comfort

Rick and I are cousins and spent much of our early years as best friends. I have been told he is the only person to knock me out - I was four and he was five during a realistic game of cowboys and Indians. I can not remember a time we were together that we did not have fun and support each other. We partied, double dated, worked cattle on the Fisher Ranch, hunted and mourned together.
He was a great friend and family member and will be missed!

I first got the pleasure of meeting Rick way back in 1986 when him, Terrie and Scott moved to Virginia to Rainbow Acres campground. His son Scott started 9th grade with me and we immediately became fast friends. From there I spent just about every single weekend at Rainbow Acres. Rick and Terrie welcomed me with open arms and I felt like I had known them forever. I will never forget Rick and the memories I mad with him, Terrie and my best friend/brother for life Scott! Rick personified the true meaning of being a real man and Cowboy and he will always be remembered and loved!
