Over 40+ years in the work force my 13-14 years working with Rick and the crew at the Alternative School were the most enjoyable years of my career. Ricks constant banter and story telling always kept us in a good mood and made going to work fun. Gonna miss you buddy but we all know youre in the presence of our Heavenly Father!

I haven't heard from Rick for many years, and I am deeply saddened by his passing. He was my best friend in high school and many years after. Life takes us in all directions and we lose track sometimes, but I will always remember the friendship and bond we had forever. My God be with his family and friends at this time, and you will be in my prayers also.
