Rick was the owner and operator of Rick Masse Trucking. He was proud when his oldest son Jody decided to become the third generation to take over the family business. He loved to play cards, enjoy a good game of family volleyball, and take his family to both the ice rink and the baseball diamonds. Rick was always up for a good laugh and tried to get a rise out of anyone that was around.
