Rick loved fishing. He would go fishing several times a week when weather allowed. A couple of his favorite activities were fishing in Lake Juno and enjoying the festivities and landscape of
the city of St. Joseph, such as Lake Michigan. He was a outgoing, loving man who was always cheerful, optimistic, and social. Rick cared deeply about his family. He spent much of his life
adamantly caring for others, mentoring, and ensuring his family was well provided for. When he wasn’t fishing, he could be found watching historic and modern automotive programs & water sports in his favorite reclining chair. Rick loved being outdoors, doing yard work, and assisting others with his vast automotive knowledge and skills.
