Rick was a friend and I always thought he displayed the temperment I admired...low key and just true to himself and all thru and thru. He was quiet, always nice and quick with a laugh while being fairly reserved.  I do remember he loved playing baseball, and our paths crossed over at the Babe Ruth ball fields on game days.  I have to believe that passion led to his contributions and volunteering with Babe Ruth Baseball.  Rest in peace Rick.

Rick was one of my very good friends!  We where both members of the Chess Club and met for lunch most days.  He was quite and reflective, a friend who enjoyed a joke and always displayed a smile.  Rick, Dave Hotz, myself and a few other classmates use to meet and play Canasta (card game I could not play today) on a regular basis during our senior year.  What great fun and times we had together in highschool.  He is one of our classmates I thought of over the last many years without making an effort to locate? Now I am, (we) are left with our memories of a dear friend and the loss of a fellow classmate.  Let’s use this lesson and rich out and find our “distant” friends.
