Rick was a great help when my husband passed away. He helped to organize and clean his collection and told some great stories while doing it. He was a kind and gentle soul. I will miss having breakfast with him at Dees. Rest well big guy and give Jane our love.

Rick was a consoler at Camp Tippecanoe back in 1965 I was only 9 yrs old, still have pictures of Rick then. Rick worked for us at the Honda shop assembling bikes in the mid 80s and got reunited 20 yrs. later knew him ever since. Watched his boys grow up, they would walk past the Honda shop to go home. Rick was like a brother to me as I would look up to him for varies questions. Always treated me with respect and kindness. Rick even worked for me at my shop several years ago. I'm one to miss the Big guy. He always will be in my memory. What a Great Guy. Miss you
