With love and sorrow the family of Richard (Rick) D. Hughes announce his passing on November 4, 2021 while comforted in the arms of his Fiancé Shar whom he cherished and shared his dreams with. Rick’s love and dedication to his family was immense and as a pillar of support and strength he will be missed beyond words. Rick is survived by his parents William and Carol, stepdaughter’s Jinna, Carly and Chelsea, grandchildren Felicity and Orion, Kaylee, Gunnar and Titus, Ava, James and Julian. He was pre-deceased by his beloved son Michael, brother Scott and grandparents Rich and Lavern, and David and Eloise. Rick is forever loved and remembered by his aunts and cousins who hold many wonderful memories. He was a trusted and loyal friend to many whom he also considered his family.
Rick was a selfless man who cared deeply and would light up a room with his quick wit and great sense of humor. His grandchildren always knew he was there for them and there wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for them. He loved spending time with his family, loved animals, fishing and hunting, road trips, riding his Harley and spending quiet days at home watching western movies. Rick maintained many friendships throughout his life and enjoyed riding his motorbikes through the hills of California and playing baseball in his youth.
Rick was a partner in the family-owned Coast Pump business. With an incredible work ethic, he gained the trust and respect of the employees and customers in the industry.
A private family celebration of Rick’s life will be held at a later date.
