  1. Bobby has always been an integral part of our neighborhood. I will miss his friendly waves as I went about my daily routine. For many years Bobby and his Dad would walk the neighborhood raising money to support the Special Olympics. Bobby’s eyes would always light up when we talked about his Brother Rick, “The Fireman”! Bobby, may your games in heaven go more than 4 quarters, more than 9 innings, and may you get a strike for every ball you roll. Bless the Fick Family for how they guided and cared for Bobby’s every need!

  2. Thoughts and prayers to Donna, Rick and the entire family. I did not know Robert but I can tell from his smile he was a true angel. May the wonderful memories you shared bring you comfort and know they will always be in your heart. Lean on those around you for love and support.
