We recall one day back in 2018 when we visited Rick and Lucy's home in Miami to watch old 1980 home movies. We had so much fun and Rick was at his best interjecting funny commentary. It was a great afternoon we will never forget. We will always remember Rick. We miss you but we will meet again. Rest in Peace my friend.
Eddie and I were heart-broken when we heard the news. Remember when you first introduced me to him when you first started dating. So honored to have read a scripted in your wedding ceremony. Rick’s perfect timing of one liners always managed to make any situation lighter. You, the girls and the family are in our thoughts and prayers.
God Bless You Lucy, Alexandra and Julieanna. And God Bless to the Keclik family, my cousins. I celebrate his life and all the memories our families and friends shared together! Rick truly was one of a kind! Cousin Paul

Keclik family, we are so sad to hear the news of your loss. Lucy, I wish we could be there to give you a big hug. Know the Old Saint Louis family has you on our thoughts, hearts and prayers. .
A long long time ago, back in the 80's ... when Lu introduced Ricky to Viv and I, we just knew he was the one for her. He was relaxed and easy going, just "fitted right in". He quickly embraced the family Cuban culture and even learned some Spanish words to tell Maria and Lucio. Ricky, You are missed but we are grateful to have you in our lives and I know that loving memories will forever hold dear in our hearts! 💕
Rick I’ll always remember our trip to Milwaukee when you were just thrilled to have three wives for the weekend, your dance moves, our great dinner at Shuckers, your food critiques (I always felt I had to step it up a notch for you) and your incredible trivia talents. You will be sorely missed. I know that you’ll be watching over all your girls. May you rest in our Lord’s embrace.
I am so sorry for your loss. He so loved his girls. You are all in my prayers.
Ay cuanto lo siento .Que el señor lo tenga en las mansiones celestiales y El esté con ustedes acompañándolas en este triste momento que pena no estemos cerca para visitarlos los queremos y estamos con ustedes muchos cariños
I am so sorry Lucy and family
I love Ricks sense of humor, a bit dry and straight to the point. When Lucy and Rick had a party I always remember sitting as the king of the hill at the tiki hut telling jokes and making everyone laugh. He will be dearly missed by everyone lucky enough to have known him.
My deepest condolences to Lucy, Alli and Julie. We will definitely miss Rick’s one liners, his knowledge of all things rock and roll and his model poses to steal the scene in photos. Rest easy Rick, you earned it. We will be here for Lucy.
Lucy,Thinking of you and your family and sending caring thoughts. May you find peace, comfort, and all the love you need in the days to come.
My condolences to the entire family. Sending you my love and prayers.

I always loved Uncle Rick’s sense of humor! I remember visiting during college and Uncle Rick offering to take all the ladies in the family out for lunch. He gathered the troops and marched all of us down to Hooters in Ft. Myers Beach. I’ll never forget how much we all laughed that day!

Richard "Rick" T. Keclik
Richard (Rick) Thomas Keclik, 64, of Fernandina Beach, FL passed away on December 6, 2022.
Rick was born January 4, 1958 as the youngest of five children to James and Margaret Keclik in Berwyn, IL. The Keclik household was full of love, fellowship, sibling mischief and great food. In the ‘80s, Rick visited one of his brothers in Miami, FL and never left. He met his wife, Lucia, and had two daughters: Alexandra and Julieanna.
Rick had a mild, kind-hearted demeanor with witty one-liners that family and friends always enjoyed and will miss. He was a classic rock trivia whiz and was the family’s go-to cook. He enjoyed watching Jeopardy and football, college and pro. Rick read the newspaper cover-to-cover and never missed a Wordle. He was always on the hunt for good food and craft beers. He took good care of his pets, but most of all, he loved spending time with family, especially his infant granddaughter. He ascended into heaven as “Free Bird” played, surrounded by family and friends. They were truly blessed to have Ricky in their lives.
A memorial mass will be held at St. Michael Catholic Church in Fernandina Beach, FL at 11:00 AM on Thursday, December 22, 2022.
Donations can be made in his memory to the American Lung Association or the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.
