He was born July 8, 1952, in Presque Isle, the son of Loomis J. and Ruth (White) Fitzherbert. Rick was a graduate of Easton High School. He enjoyed being a Boy Scout leader and was very dedicated for many years to the Easton Troop 187. He organized a camping trip for the troop each year to his family’s camp at Little Madawaska Lake. He also was a volunteer fireman for the Easton Fire Department for many years. Rick was an avid outdoorsman and especially enjoyed fishing and hunting. He said that this past fishing season was his best ever fishing with his best friend, Jim Eldridge, and he also enjoyed an Atlantic Salmon trip to New Brunswick. Rick also enjoyed playing golf, when he wasn’t spending time at his family’s camp. He had many talents including carpentry and masonry -which enabled him to build or repair just about anything.
