Rick graduated from Van-Far High School in 1988.  He followed his fathers foot steps and went to work as a truck driver for Gully Transportation.

Rick loved being outdoors enjoying Gods creation.  When not working, Rick enjoyed piddling in his shop, helping family and friends with projects and gardening.  Listening to Country Gold on KWWR 95.7 on Saturday nights and watching music videos on YouTube were a few of the simple things in life Rick enjoyed.

Family was Ricks biggest treasure.  He cherished spending time with his family and had had unconditional love for his children.

Richard was a Christian by faith.
