I have not heard from Rick in a few years but want everyone to know he was doing what he loved. Rick helped me in tough times as a brother when I didn't have any natural brothers, he took the spot. He took me quad riding , as a young boy (12) and I totaled his brand new quad. But he was still my friend, his folks owned an exhaust shop, and Rick as a expert welder did my first fancy exhaust job when I was only 16. When sis and he got divorced, we remained brothers, because I had none. His real brother Greg is also somebody important in my past, but this is about Rick. I truly loved him as a brother I never had. I hunted northwest Washington places with Rick like nobody else, Rick new everything about getting an elk or deer. It was natural to him. He could out fish the best if he put his mind to it. He was my hero as I was just a child (12) in the beginning anyway.
I know the wife he left behind
and hope the best for his family, and I want all to know that
he made such a difference in my life, back then and today. Rick
you will be missed!
