Richard was born on September 16, 1957, in Jacksonville, Florida, to Donald and Betty Mobley. Following graduation from High School in 1976, he joined the U.S. Army where he spent the next 20 years serving our country. He retired in 1996 and settled in Clarksville, TN. Rick spent several years working as a contractor on Johnston Atoll. He moved around the United States for a few years finally settling in Texas. He enjoyed many activities to include cooking, woodworking, fishing, gardening and his love for Harleys. Rick’s passion was sharing his faith. He knew no strangers. He enjoyed serving others - he was a youth volunteer, a church greeter, and helped out in Celebrate Recovery and was a part of the Senior Connection group. He took his role as a Christ follower seriously. His love for others had no bounds and his heart was HUGE! Rick was constantly making others laugh with his jokes, stories, antics, and his crazy abundance of animal noises. A great person in every aspect of life!
Rick was preceded in death by his parents Donald and Betty Mobley.
