Obituary: Rick Breedlove

A candlelight vigil was conducted at Regan Beach, South Lake Tahoe, and burial took place at Hayward, Calif., both on March 3 for Rick Breedlove, who died Feb. 27, 2000, at his home in South Lake Tahoe. He was 30.

Mr. Breedlove was born Jan. 24, 1970, to Jim and Darlene Breedlove at Alameda, Calif. He lived and attended school there until he was 15. Then he moved to South Lake Tahoe, which he made his permanent residence. He had many talents and hobbies, but one of his favorites was the practical jokes he played on friends. He will be remembered for his love of hot sauce and laughter. It was an honor to be called his friend and he will be deeply missed.

Survivors include his wife, Rene Breedlove of South Shore; daughter, Krystal Breedlove of Fremont, Calif.; parents, Jim and Darlene Breedlove of Hayward, Calif.; grandmother, Verda Fae Breedlove of Castro Valley, Calif.; brother, Rusty Raynes; sister, April Dingledine; and his loyal dogs, Safeway and Tattoo, who he loved very much.

The family requests donations in his memory be made to Hope Lutheran Church of the Sierra, c/o Rene Breedlove, P.O. Box 16454, South Lake Tahoe, Calif. 96151.
