Dear Easter Family,
We are extremely saddened to hear the news of Ricks passing. As you already know he was a great man and always a perfect gentleman! We first met Rick while volunteering for the Mason Fire department. Rick and I ran the tower truck late at night from home. Every late night call Rick would be in the drivers seat, engine running and ready to go. He was great and memories I will never forget!

God Bless Rick and the Entire Easter Family!
