Condolence From: Sharon & Tom Webb
Condolence: Cathy and family, We were so very sorry to hear about Rick's passing. I don't know where can you even start to talk about a man like him. He was such an example for everyone to follow when it came to keeping a view on the lighter side of things. He has been and will always be missed greatly. We always considered him a true friend and there is no question that he is keeping them all in stitches in heaven right about now. We are so thankful for the memories that we have and will always remember Rick fondly. You are all in our prayers.

Condolence From: Paul Batchelder
Condolence: I am so sorry to hear about Rick passing away, I worked for him as an electrician and designer and was his back up for many years. We did a couple of road trips to Montreal many years ago and always had fun. I will miss his smile and laugh but I will never forget his friendship and warmth.

Condolence From: Jim Manter, CAPT USN (Ret)
Condolence: Cathy and family, our sincere condolences on the passing of Rick. His time was too early for the family, and from a selfish point, didn’t allow us to re-connect after moving back to Maine. A classmate, teammate, friend, and fellow renegade in those high school years! From swapping cars and motorcycles, practical jokes, to telling sea stories around the country at Navy bases as our paths continued to cross. I really enjoyed the time sitting with Rick at the LFHS football games this Fall, catching up on our lives and families; our days as Naval crewmen—just didn’t cover it all. Thank you for your service! Fair winds and following seas Shipmate. We’ll miss you. Pam and Jim Manter

Condolence From: Jeff Marstaller
Condolence: Though I knew his older brother and sister-in-law (Randy and Jane) better than I did Rick, I do remember well our shared high school years.

Rick's smile and good nature are still vivid in my memory.

May God give peace and comfort to Rick's family and friends.
