He married the love of his life Karen Marie Holten in August of 1969. Together they had three children, Tracy, Michelle and Ricky. Rick worked as a mechanic and his passion was his family, working on race cars, and being as mischievous as possible. He loved riding motorcycles, hanging with his buddies (Ed Berger Sr. and Bill Gelling Sr.) and in general enjoying life to the fullest. Rick is survived by his children Tracy Aragon, Michelle Green (Jeno Bins), and Ricky Byrne; sister Joan Lewis; and grandchildren Steven, Alexa, Dominique, Jeno, MaShalyla and Alyssa; 5 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
