Sundai, Marci, and Jamelyn, I am so sad to read of Rick's passing. He was such a good man. In all the years I knew him I can't think of a single time I saw him mad. He was always quick to smile and had such a congenial manner he was a pleasure to be around. God will hold you in his arms until you finally have the strength to carry on. Love and sympathy, Lynn and Rosemary Wilson

Clint Mitchell left a message on June 29, 2022:
I am so sad about this. It is much too soon and too young. I first met Rick in the MCBU training center in the early 90's and enjoyed attending courses there several times. Fortune allowed our paths to cross again and allowed us to work closely together on many projects. One of those included an introduction to a wonderful daughter, Marci. Rick was a great guy that I enjoyed working with and always looked forward to seeing him. While I never had to meet the rest of the family, I'm sure he is an example of you all and my prayers are with each of you. He was wonderful and will be missed by all who knew him.

Allen Cooper left a message on June 28, 2022:
Rick spread his love and joy of life with all those he met. They say the only thing we can take with us, is what we leave behind. Rick left behind a lot of that joy and love, and a loving family. Prayers to Sundai and all of Rick's family and friends who will miss his presence, but relish in the fact his is looking down from Heaven and smiling. May God bless you all and comfort you during this time of loss.
