I went to school with Rick and considered him a friend, from a young age in grade school (Penn Elementary) all through high school.  Have not been in touch for many years but am grieved at his passing.  May God comfort and cover your family during this time. God Bless!

Jeffrey Bowermaster

Sincere condolences to Rickey's family. I first met Rickey at the LeTort Softball field while he was just hanging around. He soon became a part of the teams coaching staff.   He loved to help out and it was quite evident that he was a sport enthusiast. May he rest in peace.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you.  I hadn't seen Rick for many years. He had a good heart.

Ramona "Pokey" Makowski

I worked with Rick over at Sherri's for a couple of years and can assure you he was one hard working guy! He worked like that because of his deep love for his family and was doing his best to provide for them. He would just light up when talking about Ashley. I have never lost anyone so dear under the same circumstances but I know you must surround yourselves with friends and family that can comfort you.
Psalm 18:2
The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

with heartfelt condolences,
Janice Schaffer


I first met Rick at Sherri's about 10 years ago. Even after he left, we kept in touch. Rick was like a brother to me, but his love for Hazel and Ashley was amazing. He worked hard, played hard, was always one step ahead of you. I will miss you Rick but God is taking care of you and freeing you of the pain in your body. Your memories will be cheerished forever

 Till we meet again in Heaven....
Psalms 23..The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
