In the 1970s and 1980s I worked with Albert's wife, Donna. She was a bank teller at the same bank I worked at. Silk floral arranging was a hobby of mine, and I did all the flowers for two of their daughter's weddings, Nancy and Karen. How well I remember planning for those weddings, and all the fun we had. What a warm and wonderful family! When dear Donna passed away suddenly in 1995, poor Albert was never the same. How he grieved! On February 5, 2005, he took matters into his own hands. Now he is with his sweet Donna. I'm sure God understands.
Albert L. Rick, 68, died unexpetedly on Saturday, February 5, 2005. Albert was born on January 17, 1937, in Cleveland, Wisconsin to Walter and Elva (Wusenhagen) Rieck.
On August 25, 1956, Albert and Donna Mae Dross were united in marriage at Trinity Lutheran Church. She preceeded him in death on July 6, 1995.
Albert started his career in carpentry with his father and went on to work for Great Laks Homes for a number of years. He started his employment with Joseph Schmitt and Sons Home Builders in 1965 until his retirement in 1997.
He was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, serving over the years as an usher and as a member of the Trinity Lutheran School board. Most recently he served as a volunteer on the Landscape Committee. He was also an active member of Petermann's Hunting and Fishing Club where he received great joy in showing his grandchildren the process of raising and caring for the pheasants. He also served as a volunteer at Kohler-Andrae State Park on the shores of Lake Michigan in the maintenance area. Albert was a lifelong member of the Carpenters Union.

Albert will always be remembered as a hard working individual who instilled those values in others. He was loved by so many, and will be dearly missed.
