I remember Rick mostly because we played on the football team. I recall him as being a quiet guy and after looking up his profile in the 1962 yearbook, it comments:
"Quiet till you get to know him..." I did not know him well but respected his ability on the field of play.

I am sure all his loved ones remember him dearly.

Rick was a nice-looking, very shy guy, who always gave you the feeling of strength and inner values.  Although a year ahead of me in school, he made a big impression on us all, both on the field and in classes.  I think he enjoyed the entertainment of the older girls, but it never really got to him,  I am sure he is missed by many.
