Rick and I were friends back in the day. He was quiet, cool and taught me a thing or two. As I sat through the service yesterday it was clear to see that he was loved and respected by many. I am sure it made him smile..

Mary and family,
We are so sorry to hear of Rick’s passing. Our condolences to the whole family.
We all met in our teenage years and have stayed friends ever since. Rick was one of the crowd, one of the cool guys, driving his motor cycle, and going to David Bowie concerts. Soft spoken and kind, Rick was a guy that everyone liked.
Through the years life has taken us on our own paths and we never spent a lot of time together, but it never changed the friendship, once you were Rick’s friend you were always Rick’s friend. No matter where we ran into each other, we chatted and caught up on things. It was never just Hi.
We will never forget him.
We can’t reminisce about our teens and 20’s, without Rick being mentioned because he was part of it. Mary we can’t imagine how heartbroken you are because we, as well, are truly heartbroken. We are thinking of you.
God ‘s Speed
