  • Carol Becky and I are sad to hear that Rick has passed but we know that he is celebrating with Jesus and patiently waiting for us all to be with him again. God is so good to us we have never suffered as much as Jesus has for all of us. He made perfect sacrifice for us all. I remember working with Rick at Union Carbide many years ago as we both were contractors there. You and your family are in our prayers. May God ease your pain from the loss of a wonderful man. 2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

  • Coleen Davis says:

    had a way to lift everyone up with his sermons and stories .

    My hart dropped when I received the news that Rick had gone home. You all have my deepest sympathy, 58 is too young.
    But be comforted in the fact that his struggles are finished and all pain is gone. Rick is surly with our Lord and we will all see him again.
