He was blessed by his seven grandchildren who lit up his eyes; Lilyanna, Dahlia, Maverick, Hayden, Madison, Serena, and Liberty.

He happily shared his expertise and enthusiasm for fishing with his friends and family on his fishing boat the “Lucky Coho”.  As quoted by his wife, Mary, Rick was always proud to have been a “Pusser”.
