Umm...i do not know how to start this...I was not really planning on making a page for him. but now i will.
I have mentioned my Uncle Rick a few times on my wiki and on my friend Evelyn's wiki. He is the oldest brother on my moms side (my mom is the baby in the family). He was born and raised in the same city I am being rasied in.
When he was in his 20s, he was in the Air Force, and he went to Thailand, where he met Srijai (pronounced as See-chai), where they met, dated, fell in love and also got married in Thailand. She actually is 16 years OLDER then him! She had kids from a previous marriage. After that, my Uncle Rick and Srijai came back to Pa. Her kids (whom he could not adopt) stayed to live in Thailand.
Rick and Srijai were married for over 23 years. Sadly this ended in divorce. After that, my Uncle, who had relocated to the state of New York, had moved out of his place with her and got his own place. He continued to work for IBM. he worked there for 25 years in total. After that, he retired from there and worked at Mohonk Preserve, which is a place with trails for hiking and walking. He worked there for several years.
Since I was 2 years old, (after his divorce) he has come to my house for Thanksgiving and Christmas. He would stay here for about a week to celebrate the holidays with me, my mom and my dad. Even after my dad died, he would still come down and spend the holidays with us. The past few years, he was unable to make it for Thanksgiving but he almost always was here on Christmas, and a few days after that.
On March 25 2013, I had a very good day at school. I came home, and had a call from my Aunt Ginger. She had left a message and sounded pretty upset, and my mom and I had no idea why or what could have happened. I happend to go on Facebook, and I had seen that my cousin Jackie had posted at least 2 statuses, saying things like, "Rest in peace Uncle Rick..." and I said, "What the heck is this???" and I called my mom in right away. She read them too, and I started crying immedietly. She called my Aunt Ginger and she had told her that my Uncle Rick had died suddenly! :|
The last thing we had heard of him was on March 20, he had liked my status on Facebook. After that, nothing. He apparently was shoveling snow at his house. He had done so before, but he recently moved into a new house in NY a few months back. From the end of his driveway to where his house was, was a very steep hill. He was shoveling snow, and when he was done, he walked back to his house, sat in his recliner, and died. He had not shown up for his job for a few days, so his friend and landlady Penny checked up on him, and she found him dead in his chair. He had been there for days and no one knew. He had blockage near his heart, and the difficulty of him shoveling the snow, and him unknowingly having a problem, it just...killed him.

Wizards Of Waverly Place wow i even mentioned him here...i did not even realize the little places i mentioned him :|
- Christmas 2011, was when my new laptop was hooked up to Internet. He is the reason why I even HAVE Internet...well part of the reason. He helped set it up. When we were trying to watch videos on Youtube...that's when we discovered that my Internet connection does not handle Youtube videos as well as it could. (It's slow) He made up a dance, it a parody of, "Hammer Time," where he'd say, "It's Buffer Time!" And he'd do a dance when the video was buffering hahaha!
- Christmas 2012, (like Dec 26 or 27?) my mom was at work, and Uncle Rick had gotten back from my Uncle Carey's house. It was just me and him, and he had some cookies that my Aunt Kathy gave to him! We were eating cookies and talking, and afterwards he let me play Tic tac Toe on his Samsung Tab. :p
