I am a graduate from Mansfield City Schools, class of 2009, and during the course of my time as a student, I had Mr. Sayers countless times. He was, and will always be, the best substitute teacher I’ve ever had, that the district ever had. I’m grateful for all the memories, the stories he would share, and the raps he would say, and I am so deeply sorry for your loss, Sayers Family.

My sincerest sympathy to Cheryl and Devon. Rick was a wonderful man and very appreciated substitute for many years. I always liked having him in my classroom or having the same lunch time with him. Whether it was Devon's latest travel or project, he loved updating me about him. His love of the theater was also a main topic. He will be a part of so many memories of teachers and students. RIP, Rick.

So many memories of the kindest man ever. We worked with his mom at Lazarus, got to know the family & then our paths crossed at Senior High. When he subbed ( and I filled in for the secretary), he always got there First!!! Many years of enjoying you Christmas lights & seeing him at the Carrousel Park brought so much joy. So sorry for your loss. Blessings, Louise Yochheim

Rick was a frequent visitor to the Sherman Room at the public library when I worked there. I always enjoyed my conversations with him and feel relatively sure I learned more from him than he did for me. He will be missed. Condolences to the family.

I am so sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with Cheryl, Devon and all of you during this very difficult time. I am sure there is a party going on in heaven with Trent and Rick. It will be a battle as to who can talk the fastest and tell the most elaborate story. Prayers always.
