Andrew Richard (Rick) Firment, Jr., 59, passed away peacefully at his home on Nov. 6, 2019, surrounded by his loving family.

Rick was born May 18, 1960, to Andrew Firment, Sr. and Ruth Hartzfeld Firment, and was a lifelong native of Punxsutawney.  

He is survived by his parents, Andrew and Ruth Firment of Punxsutawney, his brother, Jeffrey Firment of Washington, PA and his sister Michele “Shelly” (Scott) McCall of Spring Mills, PA.

He is also survived by two children Brandon Firment of Rossiter, PA and Julie (Jeremy) Fotta of Stump Creek, PA; one nephew, Chad (Ashley) Firment of Mt. Pleasant Mills, PA, nieces Ashton Farrell of Boalsburg, PA, and Autumn Farrell of Spring Mills, PA; and a great-niece Camila Firment of Mt. Pleasant Mills, PA.

Rick worked in the past as a coal miner and most recently as a roadway flagger with Crews Control Company. 

He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends and belonged to several local organizations – including the B.P.O Eagles, the Perry Township Sportsman’s Club, The Rossiter Sportsman’s Club, and was a member of the Laborors' International Unionof North America (LIUNA) Local Lodge #1058.

Rick was an avid outdoor lover.  He was always looking for reasons to be in the outdoors where he enjoyed hunting, fishing, trapping, and almost any other outdoor activity one can name.  He was also an avid coin collector and a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
