To the entire Maughmer family. I want to express my sincere condolences for your extreme loss at this. Although I only knew Rick for a short time, I was very clear he was a man excellent character and a friend one would be honored to have. We met and skied together last year in Utah. He was such and encouragement to me on the trip and made it something to remember. His love for skiing was very evident.
Kind Regards,
Dan Legan

We met Rick at First Congregational when we began attending a few years ago. His heart and his faith were evident, and his smile was always welcoming and warm. He was a blessing and a valued member of our congregation and will be sorely missed.

“But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.”

We were lucky enough to meet and have Judge Maughmer represent us during his years with Hillis, Hillis & Maughmer. He was a wonderful person and felt like he was a friend, not just an attorney. What a terrible loss. Prayers for the family.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Maughmer family during this tragic Time.
Judge Maughmer was always fair and took his time to explain to all who went before him their rights and what they needed to do.

In my years as the Chaplain for the Cass County Sheriff's Department, I had many opportunities to work with Judge Maughmer and always found him to be a man of character and principle. May God give comfort thru His grace to his family at this time.

We met Rick and Vicki in the 1980s and found we shared a common interest in the fortune and/or misfortunes of Big Red Nebraska football.
Fun times were had.
Our sympathy to Vicki and family.
