Rick attended school in Hobbs, and later at Paschal High School in Fort Worth. He was fun-loving, big-hearted and funny to the bone. He was a great carpenter who loved working with his hands. He loved fishing and camping, but most of all, he loved a good joke – even if it was at his own expense.

Left to cherish his memory are his mother, Cathy Stewart of Azle; father, James Rash and wife Liz of Burleson; sisters, Barbara Kent and husband Robby of Azle; and Jami Golden of Burleson; nieces, JoAnna Johnson and Caitlin Caswell both of Azle; nephew Alton Kade Brooks of Azle; great nephews, Preston Johnson and Kyler Brooks, both of Azle; aunts and uncles, Bob and Debbie Jones, Johnny and Sherry Jones and Tanya Burnett of Azle and Melanie Jones of Weatherford; and his best friend, Moose, a black Labrador retriever.
