Rick was loved by all that knew him. Many knew him as “Big Rick" when they came in the Six Mile Cafe and were greeted by his smiling face always ready to talk football. Rick loved kids and always had candy waiting on them when their parents came to the check out at the register.
Others remember Rick from his dedication to his D.W. Daniel Lions, cheering them on at all their games.
