RIP Rick sorry for your loss Deb
Deb, Fred, Christina and family. So sorry to hear of your loss. I guess when you lived on “Beaver Dam” one always knows each other to some degree. That was always the way of the neighborhood. Although I did not know him in day to day events as with Jordie, seemed to me he was the same in his way of being, loving nature, helping others, a quiet man. May your memories help your heart as this time of grieving and look to celebrating all that he enjoyed.
Deb, thinking of you and sending sending sincere condolences to you and the family.

My sincerest condolences to the Wamboldt family. I had the pleasure of having Rick as a Scout Master many years ago. The knowledge and opportunities he provided me and my fellow Scouts were progressive beyond his time. Few were as passionate as Rick in sharing his wilderness experience. Very thankful.

Dear Debra and Wambolt family,
It was so sad to read that you have lost your soul mate Rick. He has had such a hard struggle lately and it has been so difficult for you as well.
Rick was a great, hardworking fellow and was very giving of his time and skills, especially with the many young men who learned SO many woodcraft and also, life skills under his tutelage. He really had a unique way with the young Scouts in his care and they will certainly never forget him.
We are all thinking of you at this time.May Rick rest easy now. Gone far too soon…
Philip and Holly Smith

Sorry to hear of Ricks passing our thoughts are with you al.l
My sincerest condolences to the Wamboldt family on your loss; you’re in my thoughts during this difficult time.
Rick was a leader of the Scout troop in Milton when I attended and taught me a great deal. He was quick with a laugh and generous with his time. I always appreciated his endless knowledge about the woods and enthusiasm to match. Many young men are better people because of time they spent with Rick during their teenage years.
Donna and David Dicks
So sorry for your loss. Rick will always be remembered for his scouting adventures and for the wonderful friend he was to our son Darren. A very kind and sincere person. RIP Rick!!!
Judi & Ken Minard

Dear Kelly and family of Rick,
So sorry to hear of Rick’s passing! So young and full of life. He was the person who I got my first interest and love of horses from. Some would say that wasn’t a good thing considering I seem to be off, more than on mine. Why his horse Beau, I believe, kicked me, that should have been my first clue. I pray he will be riding in that big field in the sky, enjoying the time with Jordy. I am not going to say it will be easier as time goes on, grieve and take care of each other. I will keep my fond memories of the years I lived near his family and l will treasure them.

To Debra and all the Wamboldt family,
We just heard about Rick’s passing. He was such a fun and caring man, our sons Dan and Dave as young boys idolized the troop leaders at the Milton Hall. Many many stories still get talked over at every gathering. The things these men taught the boys went beyond scouting and they try at every chance to pass on the knowledge learned there. Thank you Rick and Debra for those many years spent with the youth of the area and beyond. Bless you Rick.
Diane and Donald White and family
Sincerest condolences to the Wamboldt family.
Rick was a scout master of mine over 25 years ago. He was a humble and honest man whose support and guidance in scouting, and in life, left a lasting impression. Many youngsters will proudly recall navigating Rick’s special woodsman requirements such as “survival weekend” to become Chief Scouts. I echo the warm sentiments of others as I reflect on the significant impact that this time of my life had on shaping my character.
