Rick attended the Wisconsin School for the Deaf, graduating in 1970. He excelled in wrestling and basketball during his high school years. Rick worked at Freemans's Shoes, Universal Cheese and Goodwill until his retirement in 2012. He was celebrated by all his employers for his work ethic and dedication. Rick was a faithful believer in his Church Community at Bay City Baptist Church in Green Bay, WI. Being deaf all his life, Rick now can hear the words of Jesus.
