Rick came into the world on June 18, 1954, the youngest child of Anthony and Emily (Haddad) Falsetta. He graduated from Mt Pleasant High School in 1972. Rick married Jeana Bigard on September 28, 1991. Rick was the safety director at Bigard & Huggard Drilling Inc. and the head chef at the company’s annual safety training meetings. No one ever went away hungry and some may have slept through the afternoon training sessions! His homemade bread was unrivaled and a family favorite! Prior to this Rick was a car salesman for 15 years, truck driver and owner of Falsetta Trucking, and part owner of the Windy Corner Bar from 1972 to 1979. Rick was a parishioner at Sacred Heart Catholic Church and enjoyed cooking, hunting, fishing, camping, hosting exchange students, playing with his dogs, motorcycles and most recently his John Deere tractor. Rick loved spending time with and spoiling his grandchildren.
Rick will be missed by his wife, Jeana Falsetta, children Rick Falsetta of Mt. Pleasant, Fallon Falsetta of Mt. Pleasant and Samantha (Daniel) Cashen of Vestaburg, grandchildren, Makayla Jackson, Matthew Jackson, Dannie Bennett, Daymien Bennett, and Jovie Cashen, brothers, Joseph (Sandra) Falsetta and Anthony (Deb) Falsetta, both of Mt. Pleasant, and sister, Rosemary (Randy) Carson of Farwell, his beloved German Shepherd Isaac, his in-laws, Allen (Gail) Bigard, Steve (Virgie) Bigard, Bruce (Amanda) Bigard, John (Jean) Bigard and Paul (Michelle) Bigard, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, lifelong friends and of course his favorite niece – you know who you are!
