I did not realize Rick had passed away and am so sorry for the entire family. I worked with Rick at Grant Forest Products and was his Forman. Rick and I instantly became very good friends. He was such an easy going guy and his laugh was infectious. He was an incredible person and a fabulous welder. He was also such a friendly and easy person to be around. I am so very sorry for his passing
