Rick served in both the Army and the Air Force as well as being a member and Commander of the American Legion, Post 46. He worked at O’Reilly Auto Parts of Emporia, VA, as well as Echols Funeral Home for many years, where he helped those in the community in a way that not many people could bare.
A memorial service will be held at a later date and time due to the coronavirus limitations. The family would like to express a special thanks to Barbara Street and Kathy Tuck for looking after Rick the past few weeks.
