     This memorial website is dedicated in loving memory to my Uncle Rick.  He was a loving, devoted father and husband.  He was an amazing man with a knack for making every moment with him a memory to cherish.  He truly enjoyed life and the people in his.  He was the life of the party, the center of the celebration.  He was a man who understood Oliver Wendell Holmes when he said " I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.  To reach the port of heaven we must sail.  Sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail and not drift nor lie at anchor."  Though he lived only 39 years, Rick made each day count.  He brought countless smiles and laughter to others.  The true measure of a man is not what he had when his life ended. Not the house he lived in or the cars he drove.  The true measure of the worth of a man lies in those who remember him once he has passed.  Though many days have come and gone, though years have flown by without him, the memory of Rick Figy remains just as strong, just as cherished today as it was in his presence.  A part of me feels closer to him now than while he lived.  The important thing to remember now is not that he died.  But remember that he lived.  Where he has gone now I can not truly say.  I only know that some eternal part of him has remained here with us.  In the hearts and the minds of all who knew him.  He is forever with us and we are thankful for that.
