Rick died unexpectedly on Saturday, February 24th, 2018 of heart complications at the age of 65. Rick leaves behind his loving wife and best friend Lynda and his treasured children Pam (Dave), Melissa (Travis), Josh (Kaley), Aaron (Rebecca), Ashley (Chris) and Amanda (Cam). He will be deeply missed by his parents Albert (Cheryl) and Ruth and siblings Patricia (Wayne), Melody (Randy), Barry (Kathy), Cheri and predeceased by Bryan (Sue). Rick was a proud Grandpa to Kyle, Michael, Ryan, Ethan, Lauren, Andrew and Alexandra.
Rick was an avid Nascar fan and loved camping with beloved friends at Pinehurst Trailer Park. He enjoyed the hot weather and was loving being recently retired from Convoy Supply Limited where he had many cherished friends. He found much joy in cruising around town in his corvette. We know that Rick would want us all to raise a glass to him and to remember the good times as he really was the heart of any gathering.
