Rick returned home to farm with his dad full time in May of 1988. In July of 1989, Rick and Rhonda were married and settled into their life carrying on the family farm and raising two beautiful children. They recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. Rick loved his community of Nokomis, and was very involved in many activities such as the Nokomis Agricultural Society and Nokomis Scouting Association. Rick always was willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. His true passions were family, his farm (especially the cattle), and the old west, Mexico, tequila and mariachi bands.
