Rick loved His God first and was an active member of Fairfield UMC. He loved planning vacations for Debbie and himself. He enjoyed their trips out west snow skiing, snowmobiling, and enjoying the beauty of nature and wildlife. He loved finding the backroads of the places Debbie and he visited and taking it all in together. Rick loved his family vacations, smoking turkey for the holidays, frying fish, spending time with those he loved, and making memories with family and friends. Rick loved big and everybody loved Rick. No greater example of Rick’s big heart and ability to love was the love he shared with his granddaughter, Callie. The bond they shared was unique and special. They had so much fun and blessed each other in their time together.
