Rick was a 1966 graduate of Elida High School. After high school he joined the U.S. Navy where he served 2 years and then transferred into the U.S. Air Force where he served another 2 years. Once he returned home from serving his country he worked in what he liked to call “adult therapy” at the Lima State Hospital. He then became Lima’s first chimney sweep under the name, “Old English Chimney Sweep”. He eventually went into business with his brothers forming the company, Economy Home Improvement where they specialized in remodeling, roofing and siding. He ended his career as a truck driver and drove a semi for awhile and then eventually with Buckeye Transport where he transported campers. Rick was a member and secretary of the Meadowbrook Baptist Church in Lima. He was an avid Ohio State Buckeyes and NASCAR fan and enjoyed classic cars, riding his Harley motorcycle and fishing.
