Rick had a great sense of humor and was know for his big heart, love for is kids, biological or not. He would take a hit for you if you were his friend. He will be missed more than he would ever know. His beloved Pitbull show the true man by how he treated and raised his best friend. He always used sir and ma'am as a sign of respect. A gentleman to the end.

Rick was one of the most warm-hearted and loving people I have ever known. He always knew how to light up a room with his amazingly wild energy. I will forever hold the memories of him close to my heart because he always treated me like one of his own. Slick Rick is family in my eyes and he will never be forgotten.

Uncle Rick helped me and my dad through some rough rough times. He helped dad raise me when no one else could. He gave me life tips and the do and don’t of everything. I loved him like a dad figure. God may hold this man in his hands and let me watch everyone who loves him. His daughters destinee and Athena, were some of my closest friends I had growing up. They are the most amazing kids and so sweet.
