It was a pleasure knowing you Rick. An even greater pleasure seeing your devotion to family and friends! So sad that God has called you away from all so soon! But I'm sure he needed a good voice to lead all the soles in music. RIP Rick. Your memory will live on in the hearts of those you've touched.

Rick invited me about every 3 months to come up to Sterling and play lead guitar at the jam sessions he had at the Wagonwheel restaurant.
I met numerous musicians at these events and I am thankful to Rick for his friendship.
He never failed to take care of my wife, Connie, and me when we were up there.
Even though I live 300 miles south of Sterling, I will greatly miss Rick and his phone calls.
I pray for comfort and peace for the family.
