We had some wonderful times doing fund raisers for U.S. War Dogs together; Rick you always added the unexpected "fun" to the fund raisers! And such fond memories of Rick and Barbara coming over to visit; it always brightened our day. Thank you Rick for making some of Michael's last days here on earth happy days! You were one of our biggest Blessings!! I can not imagine the joy that is in Heaven right now with you and Michael up there together!! R.I.P.

My Uncle Rick was a man that I looked up to as a second Dad when I was growing up. He was a man that always loved his family and supported his daughter Sheila & his granddaughter Natalie. He was always supportive of every adventure that the family was in valve in. I will always remember my Uncle Rick, he will always remain in my heart. Uncle Rick, Thank you for being apart of my childhood. RIP
