Rick was a lifelong rancher who lived his life with integrity and compassion. The advice he gave when asked was exactly the way he lived his life: always make your bed, never lie, don?t make promises and commitments easily, but, when you do, keep them?.your word is your bond. Keep your fences straight with the world, feed your animals before you feed yourself, step up to what life brings you and love without reservation. He was always willing to help anyone who was trying to help themselves and he especially loved to teach young ranchers how to care for their equipment and animals. The honor and passion that drove his life will impact those he knew for many years. \nTo send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Rick Kveum, please visit our floral store.
