    We are so sad to see our dear friend leave us. We will forever miss him and love him. He could always make us laugh.

    So glad he has found peace after the last hard year he has endured.
    Rick, you may be out of sight but
    never out of our hearts.

    My dear dear brother. My heart is hurting so bad but my face is smiling for you are no longer in pain. I will miss our long talks from football to book writing. These last few weeks I have cried with you but have laughed so much with the time I had left with you. I will see you again one day and will continue on with our survey. I love you so very much

    Linda, we extend our deepest sympathies to you and your family. I did not know Rick very well but I know you and what a wonderful, caring person you are and the fact that you were married for 43 years says a lot about both of you.

    Linda, Teryn, Colleen, Patty & Ginger.

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this sad time. I will always remember his mother, Ann, my dear specials friend and how proud she was of her girls and her son, Rick.

    I am grateful for the life of Mr. Paddock. Thanks to his service and to the service of others in our armed forces, my family and I have been able to lead our lives in freedom and peace.

    I feel really sad. I just learned of Rick’s passing today (5/24/2023) when trying to learn of the whereabouts of my dear neighborhood buddy. He, I, Jeff Lyon, Debbie and many others made lifelong memories at Ann’s house on 76th Terrace. We went our separate ways after school but I have never forgotten Rick and his wonderful family.
