Rick worked as a manager for the U.S. Postal Service for 27 years. He was a U.S. Army veteran. Rick was known for being very loyal and he did everything to the extreme. When he loved, he loved with everything he had. When he worked, he always saw it through. When he played, he played hard.

Most of all he loved his family with his whole heart.
