Rick shepherded his family with faith and great strength through the storms. With everlasting support from Michal and God, the family not only survived but grew in compassion, determination and love for others, particularly the disadvantaged. Rick's passions were golf, softball, tennis, snow skiing, cooking, and watching the Cowboys. He spent many weekends tent camping with family and friends, fishing, boating, tubing, and was a superb slalom skier. In later years he loved cruising, experiencing the culture of other countries, and embraced the beauty and wonders of RV travel in America. Rick- 's family, friends, God, and his beloved Michal, always came first in his life. He was an entrepreneur, doing what he thought best for the family, including building a lake cabin where the family could live their dreams. He was kind and unselfish, offering room, board and counsel to young people and family members in need. Rick had a profound love for children and in retirement drove a school bus, enriching his life with love from "his" kids. Rick was preceded in death by sons Rob and Shane, his parents, and younger sister, Karen Bates. He is survived by his soulmate and eternal love for 51 years, Michal, and sons Chris; Justin, wife Bethany and grandchildren, Kylie and Holt; sister Dana Marie Barrett and husband Fred; plus numerous in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles and other family and friends.
