He will be greatly missed by many nieces and nephews, relatives and friends. Rick had many loves in his life, first and foremost was his family. He was devoted to his sons and helped to shape them into the men they are today. He cherished spending time with his grandchildren playing, reading books or anything else they wanted to do. He loved the outdoors, fishing and travelling. He had many great friendships and valued each of them. One of his passions was music; he loved listening to his favourite bands and artists, singing along to the lyrics. His kind smile and gentle nature will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
