Rick truly made the world a better place and he will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Survivors include his loving companion, Rosie Melendez, of Joplin; his daughter, Crystal Sutton, and her husband, Logan, of Jay, Oklahoma; his grandson, Camden Sutton; four siblings, Eddie Farmer, Joyce Gonzalez, Donna Price and Rhonda Mitchell; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
