Rick moved to Enid in 1949. He attended Garfield and Longfellow where he played baseball. He graduated from Enid High School in 1965. Rick attended NWOSU for one year before enlisting in the USMC. He served his country for three years, from February 7, 1966 to June 25, 1969. He served one tour in Vietnam. Upon his return from the military, he attended Enid Business School before he went to work at the family business, Enid Iron & Metal. Rick and his cousin, Larry Allison took over the business in 1984, and Rick retired in 2012.

Rick was very active in masonry. He was the leader of the craft in 2017 when he served as Grand Master of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Oklahoma. He held many offices in the Grand Lodge, and served on many committees. He was a 33rd degree Scottish Rite Mason where he served as the Director of the Work for several years in the Guthrie Valley. He was a member of Garfield Lodge #501, Coronado Lodge #56, Pond Creek Lodge #125 and India Lodge #551.

Rick loved archery, pool and hunting; but above all, he loved his family. He never missed his grandchildren’s events, or Sunday mornings with his mother. He was loved by everyone and will be missed dearly.
