Rickey Wayne Marone, the son of Ronald and DeMeris (Smith) Marone, was born on February 5, 1960 in Huron. Rick grew up on a farm near Cavour and graduated from Huron High School. He worked as a tow truck driver for Ace Towing Inc. for many years and most recently worked as a shop foreman for Sioux Falls Crane and Hoist.

Rick had a memorable laugh, smile and sparkle in his eyes. He never met a stranger he didn’t consider a friend and was always ready to help anyone who needed it. He was a very creative artist who loved to collect cars, motorcycles and tools. Everything was fixable for Rick. He loved his dog Popeye and went to the Hot Harley Nights and the Sturgis Bike Rally every year. Rick was one of the organizers of the Wheel Jam Truck Show.

His parents are grateful to have shared the life of Rick: DeMeris Marone of Isabel and Ronald (Lorraine) Marone of Cavour; three daughters, Misty (Brandon) Heck of Isabel, Jamie (Eric) Hoggarth of Aberdeen and Ali (Corey) Higgins of Omaha, NE; eight grandchildren, Corporal Kuper Heck USMC, Kenlea, Korbi, Chloe, Hadleigh, Gunner, Paisley and Cooper; siblings Dave (Jody) Marone of Pukwana, Kristi (David) Alley of Isabel, Scot (Tracy) Marone of Huron, Josh Kogel of Cavour and Tenaya Nelson of Crofton, NE; all his nieces and nephews; and special friend Autumn Davis and their puppy Popeye.

Rick was predeceased by his grandparents Al and Molly Smith and Richard and Clara Marone; uncles Russell Marone, George Marone, Jack Tounsley; Aunt Betty and Uncle Don Olson; and special cousin Sandy Wilson.
