  1. I would like to extend my condolences not only to Ricks family, but the entire Surdick family. I worked with Leo, Rick, and Lynn for years on the Corrugator at the San Diego California corrugated container facility in the mid 1970’s. Rick, Lynn and their Dad Leo were some tough hard working men in a tough industry. I have some fond memories of them.

  2. You were a man who always told it like it was, but also a man who loved his family. Rocket football games will never be the same without you there rooting on one of your grandkids.

    My deepest condolences goes out to Tina, Ricky, Jennifer, Nikki, Andy, and everyone else from the family.

  3. He was my brother, my friend,my rock at times. He will be missed. We got to be family several years ago. He helped raise my children , He introduce me to much of his family who soon became mine too. We had been through some much stuff that I can’t even write all of it . 40 years of memories wow. I love and will always miss him.
