It is with great sadness we must inform you of Ricks' passing.
As a man with great pride, he requested his illness remain private as he never wanted pity from anyone.
Rick fought daily to live for the last five years battling non-alcoholic related liver disease and was awaiting a liver transplant. He spent 3 months in the hospital with Theresa at his bedside every day and night. He was a fighter but his body could not take anymore. Rick passed away 10/15/13 with immediate family at his bedside.
Survived by his loving wife, Theresa of nearly 42 years, 4 children and 5 grandchildren.
We know Rick touched many of your lives and he will be greatly missed by all.
