Rest Richard, until you hear at dawn,
the low, clear reveille of God.

Thank you for your service to this nation. U.S. Army.

Rick was a very nice, easy going guy. He was more than just a friend, we thought of him as family here at the credit union and likewise. He will definitely be missed! Although he's gone, he is in a much better place. I'll see you again one day, Rick.
