A celebration of life/open house will follow from 4 to 9 p.m. at Arrowhead Golf Club, 26W151 Butterfield Road, Wheaton. Born Nov. 3, 1952, in Geneva, Ill., he passed away after a courageous 3-year battle with pancreatic cancer on Feb. 6, 2010, at his Wheaton home surrounded by his loving family. Rick was a well-loved person with such an enormous passion for life that radiated through every thing he did. He was a tremendous athlete and champion wrestler with a record that still stands at Wheaton North High School. Everyone that Rick met became his friend. He inspired most that knew him and he truly didn't have an enemy in the world. He was a man you could always count on to "Get it done." Throughout his courageous battle with cancer, Rick was an inspiration to all with his tremendous strength, positive attitude, sparkling eyes and infectious smile. Rick was involved in the election business for over 36 years. He was an inventor, entrepreneur and a founding partner of Vogue Election Systems, LLC, and Automark Technical Systems. He was a beloved husband to Joan (nee Hibbits); loving and supportive father of Christine (Joe) Bradley; devoted son of Catherine and the late Richard F. Vogel; adoring Pop-Pop of Page Catherine Bradley; dear brother of Donna (Jeff) Gillen, Dede (Michael) Duff and Rodger (Lorri) Vogel; fond uncle of many nieces and nephews; and loving son-in-law of Jane and Bill Hibbits.
