Rick eagerly awaited being reunited with Christ in Heaven. Rick loved being a dad and grandpa. His family was his whole world. He enjoyed spending time with his kids and grandkids, and they were the pride and joy of his life. Holidays were a special time for Rick. He especially looked forward to Christmas and planned for it all year long. There was nothing Rick enjoyed more than watching his grandkids play or playing a game of cards or cornhole with his kids. Rick was a hard worker. When he was younger, he farmed and raised hogs with his brother for many years. For the last ten years, he worked with Melander’s in Storm Lake delivering appliances. He enjoyed working with the guys there and sharing jokes. Rick also enjoyed working on the farm, taking care of his cows, and staying busy with other projects like shingling houses or wood working. He liked collecting Coca-Cola items and watching the Minnesota Vikings play football on Sundays. He would have loved to see them win a Super Bowl. Rick also liked watching movies at home with his favorite treat - movie theater popcorn. Rick was a quiet, kind, and humble man. He was genuine and always thinking of others.
