The obituary said he left behind a wife and stepchildren. Also I was told his wife was the one who found him at the cemetery, so I wonder if he called her before hand or left a note. I think this was his third wife, a former high school sweetheart.

So young, leaving so many behind to bear the burden of their pain and grief at him choosing to leave them. And to do it the day before his second anniversary. His wife must be in shock. It's just so sad. My heart breaks for his poor family. If only people contemplating suicide would realize that the dark days do pass and life will become good again, if they just hang in there.

Pam is heartbroken, as is his entire family, and for people to post some of these horrible posts, truly did not know Rick, everyone has problems, so to the trash that posted earlier commments, KARMA is a coldhearted bitch!!! You are a cowardly piece of shit!!! Thank you however for some of the wonderful comments!!!
So very sorry

It is always so incredibly sad to hear news such as this. When deep in the throes of depression, we don't see things normally. We don't see that tomorrow might be better. Having been suicidal, I can tell you that we don't want to die...we just cannot bear to live at that moment and that's all we can see. I've always been confused about who is who in that family. Was he married to Sandy at one time? Not being nosy, just care. Prayers for this family.

To WOW!!!! I take it you have never lost anyone in your life that you loved and worshipped like J.R. did his father. So give him a break!!! I don't read Jailtracker and sure as hell wouldn't stoop to putting it on this site. He is dealing with something that no young man should have to deal with and unless you have gone through it, you DO NOT know how you would react. Thoughts to J.R. and the entire family. I don't understand how anyone could do such a thing, but the family will have to live with it the rest of their lives. Show them a little respect.

You people have nothing else better to do , you need to get a life and mind your own LIFE, I feel sorry for you people. GET A JOB instead of sticking your nose in other peoples buisness. If it was meant for you people to know the REAL TRUTH Then YOUR NOT A REAL FRIEND!!!!
