Rick was a double amputee from below the knees but never let it slow him down or stop him from doing anything he wanted to do. He received prosthetic legs from Martin Bionics and was able to walk virtually pain free which was amazing.
Rick was a member of Forest Lawn Presbyterian Church, where he and Joyce were married. He served in the Coast Guard Auxiliary. He had many jobs and was mostly self-employed. He loved working on cars and could fix just about anything anywhere. He was a semi driver. He was a former member of the Ham Radio club. He loved music he was a DJ, did karaoke, sang and played guitar at church and at other events. He taught guitar lessons to many. One of Rick's passions was boating. He used to help drive his grandpa's boat, clean and shine the chrome and assist on Henry Clay's charter fishing trips. Grandpa would say, "take us home Ricky and don't scratch my boat." Rick had an amazing relationship with Ben, Jonah and Henry, the grandsons. They loved him so much.
He was deeply loved and will be missed by all who knew him.
Rick was a generous man who would help in any way he could. He was an organ and tissue donor which will help many people..
There will be private family services at a later date. Memorials may be made to the Amputee Foundation or Martin Bionics of Oklahoma City. Moments of remembrance may be left online at www.cremationservicesofohio.com .
