    He’s always been our big brother watching out for us…when we worked tiling with him everyone knew you didn’t mess with his tilers…I’ll never forget the day the girls had a grout fight and Rick hollered Lunch time, girls were covered in grout, he promised to go to small empty restaurant, his sense of humor being what it is ,he picked a big packed restaurant. Everyone was staring, the girls were sinking down in their chairs, and we were laughing..sure had a lot of good times and memories…A man full of wisdom and knowledge could talk on, and knew a lot on every subject..He always did right by us, and always bragged up our work to everyone, Always made clear we were family!
