He inspired his grandsons’ love for fast cars when they were little boys, Rick loved his wife and family with all his heart. He not only told his family he loved them daily but also showed them his love in many ways. His laughter, wisdom, listening ear and guidance will be dearly missed by his family and friends. He was admired by all those who took the time to know him.
