I grew up with Rick in Clay City. I hadn't seen him in years and had hoped to visit during the Class of '71 class reunion. I remember getting up to a "lot of no good" with him - there was always a great twinkle in those eyes just letting you know he was getting up to something. I know he will be sorely missed by Cathy and his kids and grandkids. Rest in Peace, my friend.

I had the pleasure of working beside Rick for a few years and had a great time playing pool with him! He had a laugh that was infectious to hear and we all enjoyed his humor! Many many a time we had way too much fun! Our pool team was always having a great time wherever we played! Rick was a happy go lucky guy that always had a smile for me and me for him! I just am glad I met and knew him. RIP my friend..
