Rick attended Harvard Elementary School and was a 1976 graduate of Bowsher High School. He was an assembly associate at Jeep Chrysler Fiat for 33 years. Rick volunteered at Sylvania Veterinarian Clinic as a cat cuddler and enjoyed sharing good wine with friends, traveling, golfing and “cottage life”.

Friends may visit the family at the Walker Funeral Home, 5155 Sylvania Ave. (west of Corey) on Friday from 2-8 p.m. Funeral services and burial will be private. The family suggests memorial contributions in Rick’s memory be to Memories Live On Animal Foundation, 4801 Holland Sylvania Rd., Sylvania, Ohio 43560 or The United Way of Greater Toledo, 424 Jackson St. Toledo, Ohio 43604, or a charity of the donor’s choice. If love could have saved you you never would have died.
