    Rick will be missed by so many. Rick and I used to laugh about my love for the Dallas Cowboys. He would make sure he called when they would lose. I will miss our many phone calls and the stupid jokes he would tell. Tonya, Jamie and Jessie and rest of family will be in my prayers. Sending lots of love and hugs to you.

    My favorite memory of Rick was when all of us celebrated his birthday at Grandpas fish house. Since he was born on April Fooks day we decided to cover a sponge with cake icing and decorate it with Army men. It looked really good he tried his best to cut into it but couldn’t. then they brought out the real cake that said Happy Birthday Fool

    I served with Rick in the U.S. Army and for a couple of years at the Jacksonville Army Recruiting Station on West Main Street. Rick was a professional soldier and served his country with honor and distinction. He never gave up on any task assigned and always had a great attitude and outlook on life. Rick was a good friend, and he will be missed by many in all the aspects of life that he pursued. He was kind, patient, generous and a giving person to all. Our prayers and hearts go out to Ricks family and the many great people who had the honor to know him.
