    I want to say Thank you to all of the Rieck personnel for the show of support you all showed to my family and my brother. Rick Loved his job, co workers & accounts that he serviced. Now I understand why he held on to the hopes of returning back to work. What an amazing group of people you all are. Thank you so much for everything.

    I know this is a place for comments about my father, but I want to say the class Rieck Services showed for my father today was above and beyond. I want to thank all of Rieck personnel who came to show their respects to my father today. Also all of the support you showed him through this hard time was unlike any employer I have ever seen. Thank you for everything.

    Always a shining face and a smile! I never saw him down and out. Always optimistic and positive – even when things don’t look very promising. He exemplified how everyone should approach life. Simple and realistic! I will never forget him and the presence he provided!

    Rick was a true example of how one should carry themselves in life. He was truly dedicated and left a positive impact on all around him. The void left by his passing will never really be filled and we will all carry him with us in our day to day life. Rest easy Rick.

    RICK always operated the RIECK way, he always had time to call me if he ran a call on one of my contracts to let me know what he found and what he did to fix the problem. He always had time to tell me a funny story. Always a great fit to our service operations and will never be replaced. Never be forgotten. God bless RICK and his family.

    Rick was such a great asset to have working with my Maintenance Team to keep the plant up and running and reliable. He approached our issues as they were his own and even would come in on weekends to not disrupt our schedule. He was a friend and part of our
    3 SIGMA family and will be missed. Our Thoughts and Prayers go out to his Family, Coworkers and all his Friends.

    My condolences to Rick’s family. I always enjoyed working with Rick when he was in the warehouse or if he needed something delivered to him on a job site. He was a good friend of mine and I will always miss him. Rest in Peace Rick.

    I knew Rick when I was at Rieck Services was awesome person and he had a great personality. I was saddened to hear this and I’m praying for the family for their loss. You will be missed.

    I worked with Rick for many of years doing his payroll and benefits, he was always nice when my phone number would come up to get his time figured out on Monday. He will be truly missed here at Rieck.

    Rick and I go back a long time. He was considered a good friend to me. We met as a client/business partner with Rieck Mechanical and quickly became friends as I know he did with most people he met. He was all about business but always had time to talk about whatever was on our minds. I know he loved his grandson as he always talked about him and the things they would do together. Rick will be greatly missed not only here at the tower, but in my life…. My prayers and thoughts go out to Rick’s family…
    miss you brother….

    We always looked forward to seeing Rick. He always had a smile on his face no matter what kind of day he was having. Rick was not only our technician but a great friend. He was part of the Rittal family and will be truly missed!

    I am so sorry to hear of Rick’s passing. He was a customer of mine who had become friend. He was so kind and always so easy to work with. He would always go above and beyond for his customer and I have no doubt for his family and friends as well. I am so blessed to have known Rick. Prayers to all of his family, friends, and coworkers. He will be greatly missed.

    We have implemented a lot of new technology here at Rieck and I remember Rick always having a positive attitude about the changes and offering to help the other guys around him. Change is never easy but Rick seemed to roll with the changes. Rick will be greatly missed.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.

  15. Joe Manning December 17, 2018 at 4:44 pm

    Rick and I worked at five different companies together going back to the early nineties. I always thought of Rick as great co-worker and friend. Condolences to the family.

  16. Jack Edwards Jr. December 17, 2018 at 4:31 pm

    I knew Rick several years prior to him coming to Rieck Services, he was always willing to help a friend in need. As a co-worker he was very dedicated, skilled and professional. He was always willing to help his customer, employer and co-workers. I respected that he was direct and straight to the point with no sugar coating of his opinion. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends and co-workers!

  17. Teri Storer December 17, 2018 at 4:20 pm

    I never had the pleasure of getting to know Rick since I am a new here at Rieck Services. I can tell from the talk around the office he was an amazing person. Many prayers to friends and family.

  18. Bill Dunlevy December 17, 2018 at 3:34 pm

    Rick was not only a coworker, he was a friend. He loved spending time with his family, but on many occasions he would forgo weekends at the lake to meet his customer’s needs. A Man that cannot be replaced, and will never be forgotten. My Heart goes out to his family.
    I Miss You Brother

    I felt such confidence in him – in his ability and skills as well as his genuine concern for BNC, always giving me advice on what was the best path to take. I truly trusted and valued his input and commitment to his job and the people he worked with. Truly going to miss him!!

  20. Doug Walker December 17, 2018 at 3:33 pm

    Rick is an authentic example of a true fighter. He never gave up hope of wanting to return to serve his customers, which became his friends. His amazing work ethic and care to do it right is one of many amazing traits I will never forget about him.
