  1. Its been about 50 years since I have seen Rick and remember the good times at General Motors. I remember meeting Helen and thinking what a great pair these two guys made. I am deeply deeply sorry for the family’s loss for it is a great loss.. May the Good Lord bless you and yours during this sorrowful time

  2. I’d like to take this time to say what a gentle, caring man Rick was. He and Helen had many wonderful years together. He’ll be missed very much by all. We did have some good laughs over the years.

  3. Our heart is broken to lose such a sweet, loving, guy and brother in law. We have wonderful memories to look back on and smile at the fun times. Sing with the angels now and someday we will join you. Our condolences to Helen, Larry, Heidi, Richard, Dawn and all the grandchildren.
