    My deepest condolences for April and all the family I have so many good memories of Rick starting in the old service department downtown staying after work having a few beers I remember the wedding. I used to Joke with Rick about how he looked like Dale Earnhardt, for many years he was our go to guy in the service department, if we got a job that was really hard to diagnose he was our man He would dive into the manuals and get on the computer and find the answer he was a great employee and friend he will truly be missed.
