He and Kelley spent countless hours in their family-owned restaurant. He was the shining light there and rarely passed a table that he didn't spend 20 minutes or more talking and saying "ya mon!". He could whip pricing up on any items in the restaurant. He had a special area by the bar when he wasn't talking to all his customers, who are truly friends and family, as he was loved by all.
Rick was preceded in death by his mother, Dora Anna Sonntag Maler and stepfather, Robert; his father, Jerry Gaskey, and his beautiful wife of 36 years, Kelley Dawn Driver Gaskey.
