Rick was employed as a welder at Corle Building Systems, Imler. He enjoyed family get togethers, as family was everything to him. Rick was the master chef on Thanksgiving, which was his favorite holiday. He enjoyed working on cars, fixing appliances, hunting, watching the Steelers and walking his dog, Diego, who was his best buddy who would always greet him at the door. He was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather who is already dearly missed. At his request, there will be no viewing or services.
