It was so sad to hear about Rick. Rick, LaRee and I went to Antelope High
School together. We developed a great friendship formed around school activities, sports and weekends. Rick and I spent countless weekends together exploring the vast Wellton Mohawk Valley from end to end in an old beat up pickup. We bounced along every canal and dirt road looking for adventure. We chased ducks accross the valley and knew where every pool of water was located on the Gila River. We searched for carp in the canals with a bow at hand. We knew where to find the dove and quail. We were the newer version of Lewis and Clark. We also spent hours extracting the truck from many stuck situations. Of course we had and eye on the girls and Rick was fortunate enough to capture the heart of the only one he had and eye for. Those memories that we shared are special and will remain with me forever. Rest in Peace Rick

LaRee, I'm so sorry to just read about Rick. I learned he was a gentle man while serving with you both in the temple. May you have peace knowing families are eternal. Love you! Diane Junion

"LaRee and family: I feel so bad about Rick's passing, I talked to him a little while he was in the ER. That was when I learned you both had covid. Uncle Harold and I had a lot of good times with Jack & Virginia, Rick and Randy growing up. Both there in Arizona and in Ohio. Uncle Harold was an outdoors person and a carpenter, too. The Ohio family's all feel as badly as I, but we cannot be there, some of us are getting older and not so easy to travel. We love all of you and prayers and hugs are sent your way, our thoughts are with all of you. Will talk to you soon. Love, Aunt Eileen
