Richard Growe


Larger than life, 'Big Daddy' was looked up to, in more ways than one.  He was a man who could always be counted on, and that integrity gave him the willingness to do anything for anyone who needed help.

Rick loved to laugh and whether you understood his sense of humor or not, he always had a smile on his face that made people want to be around him and to be included in the joke.

He will be dearly missed and forever remembered by all those who were fortunate enough to have been a passenger on his ride through this world.
