Rick was a welder and mechanic by trade and was working for AMPAC Packaging, formerly Mohawk Northern Plastics, in Auburn as their mechanic for the last 10 years.
Rick accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and was baptized at Bible Chapel on `R' Street in Auburn, WA about 22 years ago.
Rick had many hobbies, including collecting Hot Wheels and “actual” old cars with plans of restoring them. Rick was usually in the middle of fixing one of them at any given time.
Rick was absolutely loved by each and every person who ever met him!! He was a man of integrity, love and compassion and would give you the shirt off his back, a place to stay and something good to eat - no questions asked!! He had a great sense of humor, loved a good joke, and was a great storyteller.
