Rick L. Baldridge, 53, of White City died suddenly Dec. 4, 2007 at Providence Medford Medical Center.
He was born in Bakersfield, Calif. to Richard and Donna Baldridge, who currently reside in Yuma, Ariz
He enjoyed life to the fullest and by his own admission, was quite a handful as a youngster. His youthful attitude continued throughout his life. He loved spending time with his wife, whether camping or playing Scrabble or listening to good music. He also enjoyed golf, working on the ranch, and helping others.
He graduated from Southern Oregon University in 1996 with a masters degree in business administration. He was a self-employed entrepreneur, and successfully bought and sold numerous properties. He was always willing to share his expertise, give advice and lend a helping hand.
He touched many lives and was a loving son, wonderful husband and best friend.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his wife of four years, Pamela; his daughter, Maree and son, Daved, both of Pensacola, Fla; a brother, Ron, of Palmdale, Calif, and two grandchildren. His brother, Robert, preceded him in death.
A potluck celebration for Mr. Baldridge was held Saturday, Dec. 15 at the Baldridge home. His ashes will be scattered in the Union Creek area, one of his favorite camping areas.
