Rick was a strong-willed Vietnam Veteran Serving in the United States Air Force, but above all he was a proud dad and grandpa, he was our rock and will always be “the man, the myth, the legend.” Rick was an avid hunter and fisherman and a lover of the outdoors. He enjoyed snowmobiling, travel and attending grandkids sporting events and activities. After retirement, Rick and Stacey moved to Florida where he especially enjoyed boating and fishing. Above all, Rick loved spending time with his family and friends. He will be missed.
