A loving tribute to our dear brother Rick Leslie Bateman from his brother Bob and sister Lois Matthews. Dear Ricky went to be with our Lord Jesus Christ whom he dearly loved on March 9, 2018. A funeral service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at the Treasure Valley Full Gospel Church located at 3838 S. Cole Rd., Boise, ID 83709.
Rick was always so kind and loving with his customers at K-Mart for 33 years and Walgreens for 7 years. Everyone loved Rick! Many times he made personal home visits to help customers set up their new television. He also helped the homeless. Upon our father’s sudden death at the age of only 50 in 1970, young Rick then put his own life aside to take care of our sweet mother who we adored! He never married. Dearly loving little children, many times, Rick and I took stuffed bears and bunny rabbits to a children’s hospital. With Bible prophecies now rapidly coming to pass, we walk with Jesus who causes us to just adore Him! He is coming! And so shall we ever be with our Lord! Dear Rick, I want to sing with you in Heaven because I never did get to hear you here on earth! Lovingly so, your brother, Bob.
