He graduated from Western Michigan University and moved to Southwest Michigan where he worked for various businesses before purchasing Krizman Metal Finishing.An entrepreneur at heart, Rick founded Kalamazoo Metal Finishers in 1982 to establish a location to better service his customers. Rick made the most of every opportunity and in 1991 he was a key partner in establishing Conformance Fasteners, where he served as president. In addition to his business endeavors, he supported his community by his involvement with the Venetian Festival and Trinity Lutheran Church and school board. On May 19, 1998, Rick married Lisa Miller. Rick’s most treasured moments were spent with his family which included times on the beach, at the cabin and hosting family and friends. Rick was a man with a kind heart and unmatched character; Lisa’s best friend and rock. His greatest gift to his family was his unwavering support and belief in each one of them.
