  7. Darlene, Whitney, Jared and Jacob, I know this is a tough time for you and I am so sorry to hear of Rick’s passing. I remember when I was young and I flew out with my dad to Arizona and we picked up Whitney to take her to Chicago. I think that was the first time I met Rick, and I will always remember him as a very friendly and jolly guy. His last years were tough for him but he never blamed God and was always in good spirits. I wish Darlene and family the best of luck in the following years.

  8. To Rick’s family,
    You are in our thoughts & prayers. We were classmates from DHS and we have lots of good memories of Rick from those days. We were so very sorry to hear of Rick’s medical problems & his passing but we have to believe there is a better place waiting for us all. May your memories give you comfort and your friends & family help get you through this difficult time. He will live always in your memories til you get to be reunited one day!

  11. Thinking of Rick today with fond memories of our high school days. He stayed with us many times in our early marriage years, was the best company for a visit. Always the same Rick no different if you saw him yesterday or 30 years ago. My thoughts are with Darlene and family and hope you find comfort knowing he was cared about by many friends from the class of 1971, Daleville High School.
