I'm so sorry to hear of Rick's passing. As a young real estate lawyer, Rick taught me a lot about the practicalities of real estate law, always in a kind and friendly manner. My sympathies to your family.

Rick got me my first job! He was a staple at our Maple Grove Bulldogs soccer games and as a friendly face walking the neighborhood EVERY day, rain or shine. Thanks for being another dad to the Cheshire Lane crew. We will miss you. ❤️Erin Greenwood

I am so sorry to hear about Rick. I loved listening to his stories and just talk about life with him when he would come in to Byerly's on Sunday evenings to pick up groceries.
With Deepest Sympathies,
