Rick Wormer was the best father and grandfather that anyone could ask for. He was as strong as an ox and as stubborn as a bull but he was always there when he was needed. Rick always had people laughing with his pranks and jokes. He will forever hold a place in all of our hearts and he will be greatly missed.
Rick did not want services, he wanted people to remember him as he was, when he was well. A celebration of life is planned at a later date. Memorial contributions can be sent to Riley Children’s Hospital as Rick deeply loved his children and grandchildren.
