In memory of
Richard "Rick" Walters
Walters, Richard "Rick" You can't help but smile when you think of Rick Walters. Rick had a sense of humor that made you laugh or might have been a bit irritating. But anyone who met Rick always came away with a story to tell. A Wausau native and owner of City Bike Works, Rick had many friends. He enjoyed 'holding court' at Loppnow's, Chatterbox and Callon Street. Rick was born September 14, 1959 in Wausau to the late Gordon and Mary (Jankovich) Walters. He was a graduate of Wausau West High School. Rick worked at Hammblow and then partnered with his brother, Dave in owning the bike shop, later becoming sole owner. He was a true Wisconsin sport fan and especially loved watching the Packers, even attending their Superbowl games. He enjoyed golfing and fishing with a passion for hunting. He hunted out West and was an expert with a bow. At the age of 57, Rick passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, April 13, 2017. Survivors include his sisters, Carol (Richard) Larson of LaCrosse, Betty Gardner of Wausau, June (Duane) Bonke of Merrill, brothers, Tom (Joan) Walters of Rib Mountain, Dave (Denise Travis) Walters of Wausau and many nieces and nephews. Rick was further preceded in death by a sister, Janet and a brother, Brian. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:30 a.m., Friday, April 21, 2017 at the Church of St. Anne, 700 W. Bridge St., Wausau. Fr. Nate Kuhn will officiate. Visitation will be at the church on Friday from 9:30 a.m. until the time of services. You may sign our family guest book at helke.com .
