My parents knew Rick when they were students at UF. They always said he was a remarkable person and athlete. I probably met him when I was a baby. You go Gator!

I'm sorry for your loss. Losing someone is never easy. But God has promised us he will rid us of the sting of death. (1 Corinthians 15:55-57)

Many Condolences to Rick's family in your loss. I did not know Rick but had heard of him and watched him play football & his many accomplishments. I am an entertainer in the area and remember him ocming to one of places I played and when he asked for a song that I played for him, he showed such great appreciation for the song and shook my hand, something I will always remember.
Sincerely, Johnny Charro

Rest in peace Rick...find Lou the Greek and get a card game started. I will cherish those memories when you would join the group at my house on Tuesday evenings. You were a kind, gentle soul with a wonderful heart. God Bless you and your family as they will need His strength to get through this hard time. My prayers go out to Polly and his family.

To the Family. I was glad to read Rick was sitting at his desk figuring odds when the call came to make his journey to heaven and surely he has. I only had the pleasure of meeting him twice but was overwhelmed by this big bear of a man being so sweet and soft spoken. He had such a great appreciation for even the smallest things. You have my heartfelt sympathies in your loss but we, too, have lost a true Jefferson Dragon who never forgot us, always gave JHS credit. Thank you for sharing him with the world. He was greatly loved and admired. Bless you all with God's guidance to get thru this sad time.
