    Such sad news. Rick participated in a Fantasy Racing League with us for many years – of course, his team name was Falcon Hoot Racing. He was a Great Colleague, Friend, and Mentor of mine for many years. He will be sorely missed. Rick and Leanne Herman

  7. Clayton Neal says:

    A lot of people don’t find their true calling in life and then follow it. Rick did. He was made for the job he was doing. You could tell he enjoyed dealing with customers, trying to help make things better. A good guy!

  8. Sherry Sherd says:

    I am so sorry for you’re loss ! He left a great legacy of kindness generosity compassion How much he will be missed by those who knew him with much love to his family

  9. Doug Niesen says:

    Rick was a great man with many outstanding qualities. One thing I will always remember about Rick was his sincerity. When I would talk to him on the phone he would always say “great talkin to ya boss” and he meant it. Not because of anything I said or did…. that was just who Rick was.
    I’ll always remember his great, crooked grin of a smile. The best part of Rick’s smile was for sure that sincere look in his eye. Always made a person feel appreciated.
    Rick had an unforgettable personality coupled with a kind, warm heart. Mostly when I, and I think most people at URC spoke with him directly we called him Rick. But for sure we all called him “Falcon” when referring to him in a story or in the third person.
    Robyn and family we are all very sorry for your loss.
    His friendship, knowledge and kind spirit will not be forgotten and will be sorely missed.

  10. Ray Ciezki says:

    Fun times will always be remembered. A hard worker and always looked for the best in people. Will be missed.

  11. John Walsh says:

    Rick was absolutely one of a kind guy. He treated everyone with respect and honesty and will forever be remembered as such. He had a disposition unlike any other, always optimistic and enjoyed life in its fullest. It won’t be the same without a great friend that cared for so many people in such an extraordinary way.

  12. Jim Talbott says:

    What a great guy.
    You don’t meet someone like Rick very often.
    Rick was one of those guys you just liked from the first time you ever met him.

  13. Brent Buchcuski says:

    Such a great man. Honest, caring, and always looking out for his friends.
    The world lost a great man. All his co-workers, friends, customers, and anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him will miss him dearly. He was a class act!
