Rick was a great guy. I met him at griefshare. He also led prayer on the national Day of prayer for several years. Rest in peace friend. Blessings to his family.

Rick, Marc and family,
I am so glad my children grew up with yours, that way I was blessed to have met and spent countless bleacher hours with your dad (and mom). He never seemed to miss a Loyola game and his love for his grandchildren was obvious. He was truly one of the nicest and sweetest of men. Peace to you all
