We lost one of the good guys - always smiling, always friendly, always willing to lend a hand. I will remember Rick as a great husband, loving Dad to his kids and to George, and a wonderful neighbor and friend. My heart is with all of you at this difficult time.

Gina, so sorry for you, the kids, and the rest of the family. Rick was such a great guy and one of my best friends. We shared a lot of experiences over the last 40 years or so between work and going out. I'm so glad we got together again after losing touch for awhile. He will always be my best drinking buddy. We could go on for hours and hours (as you know) closing places down. I miss him. Can't believe he's gone...

We lost a great one. Richard was my best friend growing up. We lived 4 houses apart For two days every February we would try to do everything. Those two days were special because we were the same age. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family during this unthinkable time.

I worked with Rick for several years, we talked several times a week. We always found time to talk about non-work things, (our wives were always right, our kids were smarter than we were). He made all of us better. He was so proud of his family. I can’t imagine the loss you feel. He lives on in his family and all of us he touched.
