Condolences to the family of Bo-Gro." If there ever was a nicer person, I don't know whom that would have been. If there was every anything you needed, a bowler to go to a tournament or just a friend to talk to, Rick was that person. Rick's life really changed with the addition of Brian and Lisa. He will be forever missed and always loved.

Rick was not only the best boss I ever had, but a great friend outside of work, willing to help with anything you needed, and was the only boss that bought us lunch everyday!!! I am saddened by this loss, and hope his children find solace in the fact that their father loved them with all his heart!! -Al

I can still remember Rick spending many evenings with my father, Max, in his bowler’s pro shop in our basement and on North 48th St., drilling balls and talking. He also did a lot of painting and staining in various residences we had over the years. He was so very proud to be a dad... that was his stellar accomplishment and his face would light up with joy when he talked about them. On behalf of the Max Jensen family, we extend our deep sorrow for the loss of your father, grandfather, brother and bowling teammate.
