Rick lived his life to the fullest and touched so many people during his time here with us. He was a devoted son, father, brother, uncle, and friend. He loved his family profoundly, especially his children and his first grandson Jack. He enjoyed fishing, and golfing. He was a member of the Missouri City Chapter of the Pan American Golf Association. In 1995, he won the Golf Championship for the PAGA. He loved going to concerts and enjoyed listening to his eclectic collection of albums. He was quite the chef in the kitchen where he enjoyed cooking for his family. He had an infectious smile, contagious laugh and always made lite of everything. He will be so greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
