Richard Dale Mariscal, 54 of Billings, passed away March 3, 2013, at his home from heart failure. Ricky was born in Billings, to Raymond and Charlotte Mariscal on, as he told everyone, Friday the 13th of Dec. 1958. (It was really Saturday)
Rick got his adventurous spirit from the countless camping trips with aunts, uncles and cousins, friends and family, and annual vacations to every State this side of the Mississippi and weekly Sunday drives. As a kid he would put on carnivals for the neighborhood kids, charge a fee of course, and do stunts his sister came up with, which sometimes left a scar, because "Danger was his Business."
Rick graduated from Senior High School. He followed in his dad's footsteps and worked for the Burlington Northern Railroad. He later worked for Pacific Steel where he was a Machine Operator for 20 years. Rick not only played for, but coached and served on the Board for Riverside Little League, where his fearless leadership guided us through the infamous Pizzagate scandal. Rick loved fishing, camping, fireworks, driving to Oregon to buy string for his kites, Mo's clam chowder, the ocean, classical rock, John Wayne movies, hunting with Bob and spending time with his extended family at the Fossil. Every trinket he kept had a story and he remembered them all as if it were yesterday. Rick would give you the shirt off his back if that's what you needed and never asked for anything in return. He touched so many hearts.
Rick never married and had no kids, "that he knew of." He is survived by his brothers Raymond (Little Ray) and Janet Ries Mariscal, Jason and Jovena Mariscal; His sister Jackie and Craig Andrews. Nephews Jeremy (Melissa) Kazda and Jesse (Joni) Pirtz and Nieces Kelli (Lance) Lehigh and Raylee Mariscal; Great Nephew Austin (Kazda) Lazar and Great Niece Josie Pirtz.
