Rick, we first met back in 2011 it was in Pogo's Beer room. You were the first player to accept me as your friend and welcomed me to Pogo. We have had many laughs over the years and if I could, I would so give you my couch that you always wanted. You always hosted a great tour. I will miss you more than you'll ever know. RIP in peace my friend. To Rick's family, may the Lord Bless you and comfort you during this difficult time of grief. Please accept my sincere condolences.
WE met when I was hosting in a bowling league and i am known as kat. He would joke and say he was going to get that tail and i would laugh and say nooo not that darn tail it's a meaner. Will miss you rick.
Rick you will be truly missed by your Roses Family. We always had lots of laughs in our Hogs Tours. You have earned those angel wings my friend. To your many, many, friends and family ~ we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. May God wrap His loving and healing arms around you all during this difficult time. RIP Rick
I met Rick in Pogo Bowl in the first league I joined. He and I were both hosts there and he was always willing to come in during my tours because he knew my computer at the time was crap and I often got booted from the room. So he would come in and help me keep the tours going. Years later, he helped me start my own league and helped me with the Admin menu. I considered him a special friend. He was always the jokester, used to tease me and Kathy about sending us snow. So, one Christmas, I sent him a card with snowflake stickers in it and I think he about busted a gut on the phone with me. Even after he started driving cab and was working or sleeping during my league tours, he was still available for advice and still willing to host or play on his nights off. I will miss the random silly texts and phone calls teasing me about work or snow or anything else he came up with. My sincere condolences to his family and friends. He will be truly missed by all who knew him!
