    Rick was a true man of service. Service to his God, service to his country, service to his church, his family, and his friends.
    He will be greatly missed until we meet again in heaven.

    Tracy, Joshua, Gina, Rick & Kathy,
    We are so sorry for your loss. You all are in our prayers. Don still remembers going hunting with both Rick’s. Rick was a great guy and so fun to tease. Love you all.
