Richard Michael Miltenberger, 51, passed away on March 21, 2018.  He was a loving husband, father, brother, and friend.

Born on August 27, 1966 in Fullerton, California, Rick grew up in Placentia, California.  He graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and later moved to Ladera Ranch, California.

Rick started writing at a young age, and his ability to communicate with clarity, eloquence, and style was truly his gift. He worked in the field of public relations and was a managing partner at Westbound Communications.

Rick was a devoted father, spending most of his time supporting the pursuits of his children.  He spent his weekends at soccer fields, football fields, baseball fields, and cheer venues.  Rick was one to enjoy the simple pleasures in life: good books, good movies, good wine, and good friends.  He was an avid Steelers and Boise State football fan.

Rick is preceded in death by his mother Faye Miltenberger.

He is survived by his loving family Dana and Samantha Schneider, Children: Ryan Miltenberger, Tyler Miltenberger, and Cooper Miltenberger. Father: Richard Miltenberger, Sisters: Julie Muranaka (Ken), Karen Schrantz (Pete), and Tricia Sells (Kevin).
