He pursued other career paths over time, including nearly completing his degree in education, before deciding he did not want to teach. He always returned to the restaurant industry. This was the work he enjoyed, although it took a physical toll on his health.

He continued to take an active role in their lives and was always very proud of sharing their achievements with others, including that both children are currently attending Arizona State University. Rick’s other loves included his dog and constant companion Telios, as well as music, philosophy, reading, and cruising in the various convertibles he drove throughout adulthood.

Rick also enjoyed training in the martial arts as a younger man and attained a black belt in Shotokan karate. He was a proud and active member of AA for over 13 years.
