Rick was employed as a sales representative with a number of different companies, including Squibb, Artromick, and Goldline Laboratories to name a few. He then worked hard as the owner of The Pie Guy, Inc. with his brother in New Hampshire. He loved to be in the kitchen, whether making pies, or cooking and baking with his family. Following that, Rick was employed as a driver for Boston Coach, where he had the privilege of driving many important people, politicians, and the hilarious Will Farrell.
Rick was a great family man; devoted husband and loving father. He was joined in holy matrimony with his wife Lois for 48 years. He was the love of her life. Together they had four children. Rick enjoyed coaching his son’s Little League teams, as well as supporting his daughters in softball, swimming, and diving, in the town of Reading, MA. Rick’s favorite team was the Boston Red Sox, whether he was watching from home, chatting about the game with his mother over the phone, or having the wonderful opportunity to cheer them on in person. Rick had a passion for music, board games, fishing, hikes, going to the beach, and skiing. Nothing made him happier than big family get-togethers with his brothers, sister, mother, nieces, nephews, and grandchildren. Rick was always cheerful and loved a good conversation, never leaving one, but always starting one. Rick knew how to make everyone laugh and have a great time!
