I have many great memories of Rick from working at NAL. Rick was one of the toughest men I’ve seen. He had so many health issues and worked in spite of being eligible for full disability. He had tons of knowledge on Equipment and helped me out many times while I learned the equipment side. My sincerest condolences to his family & Greg Beard, as I know what a true friend he was to him. He will be sadly missed! Candy
