Richard Lee Gribling
Aug. 21, 1958Aug. 31, 2011
Rick quietly took the hand of our Heavenly Father on August 31, 2011, after a two-year battle with melanoma.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, September 10, 2011, at at Dayspring Christian Center in Terrebonne, Oregon, with a reception to follow at the church.
Rick was born in La Grande, Oregon, and most of his adult life was spent in Central Oregon. Rick married Tamara Goodright in June, 1985. The Griblings lived in Redmond on a small farm for 23 years.
Rick was a licensed journeymen millwright and worked in several local mills. His most recent employer was Key Tech in Redmond, which he really enjoyed, but due to the cancer he retired in 2010.
Many in the area know Rick's great love was guitars. The Griblings owned and operated Swing Shift Guitars for many years in Redmond, Ore. Rick's faith grew into a strong love for the Lord, in part due to the many people who touched his life while he was in business.
Dayspring Christian Center was Rick and Tami's home for worship. He played on the worship platform for many years. If the doors were open, he was there. Many wonderful stories have started from his gift to share his love of music.
Rick was very loved by his family and will be greatly missed by his children: daughters, Haylie Gribling, Katie Vernon, and Kaylee Gribling; sons, Branden Moore and Mike (wife, Sarah) Caven. Rick and Tami were also blessed with two grandsons, Conner Vernon and Adrian Caven.
Rick is survived by his wife, Tami; father, Gayle and stepmother, Barb Gribling of Elgin, Ore.; mother, Dixie Stanton of Bend, Ore.; brothers, Gordon (wife, Roberta) Gribling, of Redmond, Ore., and Greg (wife, Julie) Gribling of La Grande, Ore.; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Memorial contributions can be made for Kaylee J. Gribling’s college fund at any Columbia Bank; or Partners In Care Hospice, 2075 NE Wyatt Ct. #1, Bend, OR 97701.
