    So saddened by your loss. Remembering him as grandpa to Nick and Abby brings a smile to my face. His plans for a miniature tool belt for Nick to wear in the Labor Day Parade with the Ironworkers. His tender care of Abby when she fell down the stairs. (I didn’t know he could move so fast!) He aspired to be a man’s man but he was putty in his granchildren’s hands. Praying you find comfort in your memories.

    candle 7So sorry for your loss. I would not have known him if I met him on the street. I have thought of him often as he left me with a very humorous memory of the day he was challenged by some of the guys in our Biology class to swallow one of our class goldfish (whole) & he did! Crazy… like something off of “Animal House”, needless to say our Biology teacher was not happy. Praying for your family. Beverly (Wakefield) Saenz

    Kathy & Family. Our loving sympathies. We have such great memories. Rick & Kathy were so fun to double date with – convertible rides, homecomings & proms, crazy fun at Six Flags with Don & I. Turkey Bowl and Hay rides, and always a story to be told. You were my crib buddy, Rick, from the early years. I’m sure Rudie Wucher & your dad were there to welcome you through those pearly gates. We will miss you dear Friend.
    Love, Cathy & Don Boschert.
