I was shocked and saddened to hear of Rick's passing. Rick and I worked together many years ago at Ralston Purina in Lancaster. We had some good times riding motorcycles, working together, and just hanging out and drinking coffee. I lost touch with him over the years and had thought of looking him up one day. Sending my most heartfelt condolences to his family. Rest in Peace, my friend.

I was devastated to hear of Ricks passing. Rick has been one of my longest and most cherished friends. He was one of those people that you could see once a week or once a decade and pick up the conversation right where you left off. As a child, sleepovers with Rick and his family are some of my greatest memories. His mother instilled a love for rock-in-roll and mustangs in all of us. Ricks loss leaves a void that will never be filled, but his friendship leaves memories that will never be forgotten. God speed my friend, until I see you again.
