In 1987, Rick became the proud father to Travis, Whitney and the following year to Jen.
In 2003, he married the love of his love life, Dona Maria and added 4 more children to his family: Cobyel, Briona, Matea and Kade. His family continued to grow with the addition of sons-in-law, Chance, Joe, Rocky, AJ, Drew, and daughter-in-law Laura. He later became a grandfather to Braydon, McKaiLee, Riggin, Kaid, Amara, and Burk.
Rick enjoyed spending time with his family, especially outdoors. He was an avid football and NASCAR fan, and had a love for music that was contagious. We will always remember him singing, laughing, and dancing.
Rick was welcomed with open arms to the other side by Eric, Lois, Kade, Lari, and Ruthele who preceded him in death.
