    Saddened to hear of Ricks passing. Great memories of him and his mature ways back in middle school. A gentle soul taken from this earth too soon. You will be missed by many, but we take comfort knowing you are with our Heavenly Father.
    Condolences to the entire Stiles family, his wife and daughter.
