May 22, 1956 - January 21, 2022
Leonard Phillip Rick, 65, of Manito, IL, formerly of Northwest Indiana, passed away at his home on Friday, January 21, 2022. He was born May 22, 1956, in Chicago, Illinois, to Edward D. and Rita (Roszkowski) Rick Sr. Leonard is survived by three children: Christopher (Alicia) Rick of Hamilton, Michigan, Jennifer (Jason) Collins, of Hobart, Indiana, and Lindsey (Thomas) Hill, of Manito; eight grandchildren: Hayley, David, Trinity, Zayne, Colton, Isaac, Carter and Lyla; as well as great-granddaughter, Soraya. Also surviving are two siblings, Edward Rick, Jr., and Cathleen Austin. He was preceded in death by his parents. Leonard was a family man. He loved his children, grandchildren and great-granddaughter more than life itself. He was a man of few words, but when he spoke, he was wise and unfiltered. He had a sense of humor and loved to tell stories. He loved country music, fishing, hunting and guns. With his passing, there will be an endless supply of Smarties and a four pound bag of Albanese chocolate covered cherries in Heaven. In his younger years, Leonard worked as an electrician with his father at the Field Museum in Chicago. He worked as a truck driver for twenty years. When his health would no longer allow him to drive a truck, he took a job as a truck dispatcher. He was a 1974 graduate of Edward Tilden High School in Chicago. He enjoyed home improvement projects and working on cars. Cremation rites have been accorded and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to the donor’s choice. Online memorial messages may be left for the family at www.hurleyfh.com. Maas-Hurley Funeral Home in Manito is in charge of arrangements.
