Rick Reddick, loving husband, son, and friend to many passed away on February 20, 2019 at home after an extended illness.

He attended Ravenscroft School of Raleigh, Wake Forest University, and graduated from NC State University.
He spent his professional career as a Broker after working a short period of time with his family at Reddick Equipment Company, in Williamston, NC.
Rick was an avid reader and best known for his sense of humor, love of life, love of family and friends, and love of strangers. He loved engaging all people and brought immense joy and humor to countless people even during his own challenging times. Rick lived his life believing that Life is a Journey Not a Destination.
He is survived by his adoring wife and best friend, Kelly S. Reddick and his loving mother Mattie G. Reddick of Raleigh, NC.
In lieu of flowers, Rick has requested that those who wish to make a memorial donation please donate to the American Cancer Society or Transitions LifeCare Hospice.
