    Rick was a classmate of mine whom I looked forward to seeing at our upcoming reunion. He always made me laugh. He had a heart of gold!

    my thoughts are with his family. This is a shock to me. I was Rick’s friend in the past but had no idea. May I ask what happened? May you find comfort during this sad time.

    I worked with Rick on the Wisconsin Southern Railroad. He worked hard and brought plenty of humor with him where ever we went. He was a guy you wanted to work with because when you’re laughing the day doesn’t seem as long or the burden you’re carrying as heavy. I am very sorry for your loss. He is missed.
