  1. Rick was a great guy I had the pleasure to know thru a special friend Lori Solah and her sons and grandchildren. Over the past 5yrs he has been involved in my life he was always willing to give the shirt off his back to help in any way he was able, always had a smile on his face, never complained about anything he might have been going thru in his own personal daily life. Always walked a straight line. He was a father and a grandfather without the titles and will truly be missed. Ya know! How about helping out those Vikings! Later!

  2. So sorry to hear about this. Rick was my cousin, growing up together he was the baby out of us all. I’ll never forget all of those memories, such as the wrestling matches in the dining room when our parents went out. Snowmobiling and so much more. My heart breaks for you all. Much love and prayers. He is reunited with all who went before him and is in great hands.

  3. Rick was a very special guy. He was part of our family also because he was my daughter’ s (lori salah)other half . I always looked at him as my son-in law even though they weren’t married.He was a great father figure to loris’s sons and enjoyed doing things with them and teaching them new stuff. Rick was in our lives shortly over 5 years. He surely will be missed at family gathering and our family vacations we took each year.He’d always say” How ya doing when he walked through the door.”He was a very likeable guy and always was there to lend a helping hand to ever needed it. My condolences to his family. I don’t know why God always takes the good ones before their time. Until we meet again RIP Rick !! We love you! Ya know!

  7. I met Rick through my good friend Lori Salah. Rick was always so good to her and her boys. He is the kind of guy you just like right away upon meeting him. He was so laid back and down to Earth. My boyfriend Fred got to hang out with him a few times and he liked Rick instantly as well. You will be missed Rick. I wish we had more time, for double dates etc. You were always so fun to hang out with. R.I.P
