Rick always had a smile for everyone! Greeted us with a “how you doin?” Always very proud of his family! Always had his Mountain Dew in hand! 😊

I remember we went to
Ohio when Janelle was maybe 4 months old ( his granddaughter). We went to see Rick and he was so happy because he had saved money to buy Janelle a really pretty outfit. I’ll never forget the big smile he had when he showed us the outfit. I’m so glad that his grandkids got to spend time with him last summer. We love you and we miss you!
Dad I will always miss how you always told me you were so proud of me I love you and miss you I know that you are no longer suffering but please know you will always be missed.
Mr. P, I have only warm memories of you. Everytime you’d come over all you wanted to do was work. I had to bribe you with Mountain Dew and deli cold cuts just to get you to chill in the backyard with me during your visits. It was good to see you before you went Home. I know you and Ash are proudly watching over us.
Rest well, my friend.
