On January 23, 2018, our beloved friend, son, and brother was lost to us, while in Japan. Although Rick had struggled with many adversities, he was always there for all of us through our struggles. We are hoping we can all help return the favor and be there for him as he was for us... Rick was loved by many of us. His loss came to us as a tragic surprise, even more so, him being so far from all of his beloved family members and friends.
Our goal is to be able to bring Rick back home so he can be with those closest to him. We hope to be able to pay him the proper respect he deserves. Not in mourning him, but in rejoicing his life. We appreciate any help we may be able to receive and hope you may join us in celebrating our beloved friend's life.
Words can not describe the gratitude to the people that are able to help.
