Rick / Preacher,
You will always have a special place in my heart. You will be missed by all that you touched. Please look up my brother, Slim Eagle, and give him a hug for me.
God Bless you my brother,
Tim / Jasper
Rick – Your smiling face and great attitude will be sorely missed . Your presence always brightened the range, and left us with laughter and joy in our hearts. Give Sandy , Sgt Mac, and Grey Eagle my best wishes, I’ll be along soon enough. God Bless you my friend,
To Rick’s family, my deepest condolences. I just learned of this very sad news today. I knew Rick from the shooting industry and I would look forward to seeing him at SHOT Show each year. Also being of French heritage, I would address him as “Monsieur Homme” (pronouncing it in French as ‘umm’). We always had fun with that. I will miss him dearly.
