Frederick L. (Rick) Herzog Obituary
Frederick (Rick) L. Herzog

Born January 28, 1949 in San Jose, CA, Rick left us June 13, 2016, after suffering a sudden heart attack at West Seattle Golf Course. A proud graduate of West Seattle H.S. ('67), Rick earned his BA from Concordia Univ. ('71), in Seward, NE. His career began with the Washington State Ferries, before later retiring from the Univ. of Washington.

It was while working a Seattle-Winslow ferry run, that he would meet his wife of thirty years, Diane. They were married August 15, 1974, and later moved to Lake Forest Park in 1981. An avid golfer throughout his life, Rick was surrounded by many lifelong friends, in the neighborhood he grew up, and playing the game that he loved. He will be missed.

Preceded in death by his parents Fred and Jan, and wife Diane, Rick is survived by his son Nate, son Morgan and daughter-in-law Allison, sister Deborah Bessette and brother-in-law Steven, brothers-in-law Dave Drain, Dennis Drain and sister-in-law Marsha, Dale Drain and sister-in-law Tina, and many nieces and nephews.

Memorial services to be held, Wed., July 6, 2:00 pm at Hope Lutheran Church in West Seattle.
