Our family appreciates the overwhelming amount of support we have seen from the community during this difficult time. Rick meant the world to his wife of 35 years and his two children, and he will be missed by the many whose lives he touched. We are unwilling to do any interviews or make any comments at this time, and we request that the media please respect our family's privacy.
