Rick was proceeded in death by his parents Fern & Floyd Germano, brother Ron Earvin, brother-in-law Pat Smith and special Aunt, Louise Steele. Rick is survived by the love of his life and wife of 37 years, Deb; daughter, Sarah (Joe) Herston of Tallmadge; son Vince (Caitlin) Germano of Brimfield; and six grandchildren, Vince Jr., Gage, Carmyn, Liam, Audrey, and Ella; sisters Cheryl Smith of Stow and Diane Cowell (Dave) of Statesville, NC; sister-in-law, Jill Earvin of Cuyahoga Falls; and brother-in-law, Anthony (Theresa) Montoni of Kent; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and many special friends.
