Rick was devoted to the Partnership’s mission to “Create thriving places to live, grow and work in partnership with communities.” He was an active member of his community having served on numerous national and local boards and advisory groups including Governor Dayton’s Task Force on Housing and NeighborWorks Capital. Rick was a very active man who loved his family well. He enjoyed walks with his family often veering off the route to push a stroller after a rabbit much to his grandchildren’s delight. His grandchildren will remember him as an adventurous man who made time for monster at the park and dancing in the kitchen. He loved runs, frequently running 10-15 miles at a time. He was a phenomenal cook and a master bread maker. While baking, he often cranked the music and danced joyfully with his daughters and grandchildren. He was an avid reader, reading everything from Science fiction to Civil War history to spider guides.
