Rick took me off the streets and gave me a chance to be something special with my talents. He gave me chances no one else has before or since.

My memory of Rick will always be one of kindness towards me as I joined the OneAmerica family and then as we worked together on our company's General Agent's Council. Rick was always willing to help, listen, and provide guidance. i am convinced that he was called home to a kind loving Heavenly Father who had a work for him to do in heaven, and needed his talents now. My prayers and thoughts are with his family, loved ones, and those associates in his agency.

With Kindest Regards,

Kent Binning

hull and spars as she

I am so happy that

When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves a gift of memories in exchange. My first memory of Rick was when he was being recruited to AUL/OneAmerica. I remember it was May and I got to show him around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. We had a great day. I will keep everyone in my prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Rick. I have many fond memories of high school that include Rick. He was a fun person to be around and although I have not seen him in many years will remain touched by him in my life. I will pray for you and your family for the courage to get through this difficult time.

Deepest Sympathy,

Heaven has received another angel to look over us. Though I may not have known Rick personally, his family is so kind and I am very sad for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with Rick's many family and friends during this difficult time.
