Being a member of the Pastor’s Prayer Partners and the Sonburst Sunday School Class, and former Decision Counselor, were so special to him; he loved listening to the choir and orchestra.

Risk held several jobs through the years from managing stores to working on CB radios. He received his pilot's license and bought a plane with his best friend.

At that point he became a beloved and highly respected elementary teacher – continuing to stay in touch with many of his students throughout his life. He taught 20 years at Rice ISD and three years in the Dallas ISD, teaching at Macon Elementary. 

Fishing and hunting were important to Rick, having many memories of these. He was a single parent most of the years raising his son. Once he and Regina were married, they were blessed to have many traveling adventures together, including cruising and RVing. Many of these adventures including traveling with grandkids and leaves great memories for his family. 

Rick was seen by all who knew him as a Godly good man who loved his wife, Regina, and was so proud of his family. He was incredibly kind, generous, welcoming, loving and had a great sense of humor. He loved cooking and entertaining others brought him happiness. Anyone who had the opportunity to know him, and especially his friends who knew him well, were blessed.
