Who was Rick Dufoe?

Rick excelled at many things in life. In high school he was a basketball star. He joined the Army in 1980 and proudly served our country. In 1995, he was named Mr. America for his bodybuilding competitions. He gained his pro bodybuilding card in 2009 and continued to work his body daily. He was incredible at building and designing things.

Rick knew no strangers and was always willing and generously lending a helping hand to others. He loved his family, animals, and friends tremendously and was very passionate about his Native American heritage.

A huge inspiration to many… A mentor, a teacher, protector, husband, father, brother, and most loyal friend.

He enjoyed horseback riding, going on cruises, boating on the lakes, camping in the adirondacks, partying with his pals, and was the constant life of the party making people laugh uncontrollably. He was crazy in all the best ways…

He leaves behind his loving wife, Kimmy, daughters Candace Dufoe (Sarah), and Lacy Carino (Tim) Buckley, grandchildren Colton and Roman, sisters Brenda Dufoe, Linda Dufoe, MaryLou Camelio, and Sharmon Vanderstyne, brothers John Castiglia (Amy), Ron Dufoe, Jr, and sister Wanda Wheeler; nephew Michael Grana, niece Tessa McGelligot and Tiara McGelligot, great nephew Angelo and predeceased by parents Ronald Dufoe and Winifred Dufoe and niece Nicole Grana, and many best friends. He will be missed dearly.

There will also be a service held in his hometown, Rochester, NY. Time and location to be announced.
