Miss you buddy - I will never forget our friendship!
August 03, 2010
Now that I am gone, I have these things to say.
Tell my friends I loved them, each in a special way.
Tell my daughters that I'm sorry, and I'll see them again someday.

Tell them that I love them.
Tell them not to cry.
Tell them I'll miss them.
Tell them I said good-bye.

All the things I felt, you will never even know.
I had so much love inside, that I'll never get to show.

Please don't stop laughing.
My family stay strong.
I will never forget you.
Even now that I'm gone.

To all the people I love, this is what I have to say,
I'll love you forever, and I'm sorry it ended this way.

almost a year ago... I will never forget you.
And I promise never to forget your words: "Fate doesnt also drop things in our laps, most of the time it is branch of opportunities that we have to reach out and grab ourselves".
Thank you!

My husband, Alec, and I became great friends with Rick and Merete during the year that we lived in Billund in the mid-90s. Alec started out playing basketball with Rick and we soon started spending much of our free time together. I have so many wonderful memories of Rick - his love (and talent) for cooking and design, his smile, his easy laugh. We deeply enjoyed our time with him and are so saddened by this loss.

Rick and I worked together in LEGOs development department for a number of years. He was a warm, friendly, "get up and go" kind of guy with a good sense of humor. I am happy to have known Rick, and am very sad that he is no longer around. My thoughts go out to his family.
July 11, 2009
final good bye was yesterday in DK, that really showed how many cared for you. our love will remain in my heart for always.
siegrist family take care of each other and the two small girls.

Rarely do you meet people so warm and friendly as Rick. I was new at LEGO when we first met but Rick was always there for me when I needed his help. His warm and humorous personality was second to none and I am deeply touched by his passing. Rick, you will never be forgotten.

Rick was a friend - fun, smart, creative, warm - and I am thankful for the brief time I knew him.
My prayers go out to his family, especially his two beautiful girls.

I remember playing pickle and I-Spy growing up with the gang on Tuscany Lane. It is an honor for me to have known Rick and his family. I am deeply saddened by his passing and will keep the family in my prayers.

Our thoughts and sincere condolences goes to Rick's family as we share their loss. The memory of Rick is one of a good friend and colleague, who was always in good spirit and fun to be with. We enjoyed many good days on the road together, traveling abroad. He was also fond of sharing stories about his family and friends in Michigan, and was a caring father. Rick's creative strain added positively to the work we did together, and his memory will surely live on in the toys he helped create.

Rick was one of the boys from the hood. I grew up going to school,playing sports and getting into alittle trouble at times. He always seemed at ease with everything. Its like it got it(Life).My prayers to you Rick and your family.
July 07, 2009
I have known Rick since he joined LEGO and for the last year Rick and I have been working closely together designing technology products. It has been quite an adventure and we have reached very far. Rick was not only a highly skilled designer but also a very warm person and a great dad - I will miss him a lot.
July 07, 2009
Dear Bob & Family, I just received the sad news about your son, Rick. Words are so useless at a time like this, but I want you to know I am thinking of you and praying that God will hold you close and comfort you as only He can. Please take care.

I never new Richard... but I've seen the results of his work. He will be missed.
July 07, 2009
Hanging out with him at the USA MINDSTORMS events was very fun for me and I looked forward to seeing him at each meeting we attended. He was a big reason I took these vacations to stop and play. My condolences and Thank you to Rick's Family and Friends!
July 07, 2009
I'm very sorry to hear of this. While I only met Rick one time, I had a wonderful time with him, talking into the late evening, and just hanging out. He was an amazingly creative person, but one you could relate to instantly. He will be sorely missed. To his family... I'm terribly sorry. There's nothing I can say to make any of this better, but please know that Rick was loved by an awful lot of people.
July 07, 2009
Dear Ricks family in usa and in dk. I just read about the sad about Rick. I can´t find words which fit and will help but I think of Christine and Caroline which I know though me job in Nørup, dk. I hope that they are taken good care of ( it will be a long way to dk for them.) They have lost a friendly, caring, always smiling dad. he will be missed. R.I.P. Rick.

Rick was a wonderful person. I had the pleasure of spending time with him at various conventions he attended for LEGO. I am one of the LEGO fan community that is very involved with Mindstorms. Rick brought an energy into the room with him that made you want to think big. His attitude and creativity will be missed by all. On behalf of the Mindstorms Community Partners team I offer my deepest sympathies to family members impacted by his passing.
July 07, 2009
Please accept my deepest sympathies. I have known Rich since he arrived in Denmark.
Caroline & Christine - Take comfort in knowing that both of you now have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
July 07, 2009
It was quite a shock when I got the phone call that Rick had died yesterday.

It is not long ago we had dinner with friends, we had already made plans for a night out when he came back to Denmark from USA.

I first met Rick 10 years ago when I worked with him at LEGO, since then we remained in contact.

No matter what mood I was in before I would always leave a conversation with Rick, with a smile and a laugh. His energy was contageous.

I hope you will find some consolation in the fact that I share your grief and sadness.
July 07, 2009
You will be truly missed Ricky. My prayers go out to all of the family. I'll never be able to play with my son and not think of you buddy. Legos are one of his favorite toys. You came a long way from the kid I met in kindergarten and the world is diminished by your loss.
July 07, 2009
You touched my heart, and I will carry you there for always...
July 07, 2009
I had the pleasure to work with Rick at LEGO. He was extremely talented, funny, creative and had an admirable attitude. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers for his family and friends.

I had the pleasure of knowing Rick for over 25 years and was blessed to be able to call him a good friend. All who spent time with him can attest to the fact that he truly was a great man and his passing will leave a huge void in the hearts and lives of many. While we may not understand why he left this earth so soon, Rick touched my life, and the lives of others in ways that we won't ever forget. There are no words that can convey how sorry I am for your loss but may the peace which comes from the wonderful memories he gave us all comfort you in the days ahead.
July 05, 2009
God bless you,Rick. May you rest in peace and may the Lord grant peace and consolation to your entire family.
