    Rick will be missed greatly by his 5th Avenue friends. His smile, grin and laugh was contagious. He was always so kind to our kids so so generous handing out MN made gifts at our National Night Out parties. I’ll miss seeing and talking to him. So very sorry for your loss Ann and family!

  2. To all of Rick’s family, my heart skipped a beat when I found out Rick died. He was a fun, smart, caring classmate. May God surround you with his love & comfort during these sad time.

  3. Sister Joyce Willenbring says:

    Rick was a delightful guy. He was friendly, caring and fun.

  4. Pamela (Hasfjord) Weierke says:

    With a sadden heart, Rick and his family has the whole Hasfjord family in our prayers. He was a great neighbor and would help anyone in need. My memories of Rick where so in line of his dad Bud. We will see you again, my friend and may God be with you!

  5. We are at the North Country Buyers show in Walker, and many of us are missing Rick’s happy face. We had not heard the news of his passing so want to send our sympathy and prayers to his family. Always so hard to say goodbye to those we love.
