He also enjoyed go kart racing, taking care of his donkeys and mules, going to auctions and flea markets, sampling Moonshine in Minocqua, and riding his Harley. Rick was a super person, a good cook and always took care of his mother and the rest of his family. Rick and his wife, Kathy, were looking forward to moving to Florida in the near future.
