Rick was born February 9, 1954 to Harold and Ramona (Dean) Edberg. He lived his entire life in Belle Plaine, MN. He graduated from BPHS in 1972, where he then attended and wrestled for Mankato State – this is where if you hadn’t heard he made the dean’s list. After finishing school, he joined his father’s construction company. Later, he partnered with friends to form their own construction company. Until his death, he was very proud of his craftsmanship and working at By The Yard. Rick married his once in a lifetime love, Susie Straub, on August 23, 1975. Together, they raised their children Pat, Joe and Lindsay. Rick’s desire to help others was apparent in all projects, big and small, which he volunteered to family and friends near and far. Fall and winter would find Rick with friends and family, passing on his love and wisdom of hunting, fishing and anything with the great outdoors. Rick had also enjoyed teaching his grandchildren the joys of art and spent many hours with his father, Harold, working on puzzles. His passion for pool, softball, and hunting led him to an entire extended family that he loved to share his experiences and knowledge with. Above all, he enjoyed and loved spending time with his pride and joys – his children and grandchildren.
