I just heard the sad news today. I'm about 6 years younger than Rick and rode with him 40 years ago in the "rock quarry" and used to stop by his house on my paper route. Rick was one of the big guys I looked up to and was always nice to me as a kid. Later on bout boxes from him and in more recent times would enjoy a conversation reminiscing about the good old days. He will be missed.
Just learned of this sad news of Ricks passing. We used to live in Southern California - went on many dirt bike and camping trips with this great man. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his children and family. RIP dear friend.

We knew Rick since he was a little boy living on Diamonte Lane. He babysat our daughters and had so much spirit. As the years went by, he would still pop in to say hi, even as recent as just a few years ago. Rick always was kind and had a big heart. We will miss him. Our thoughts are with his family.

I knew Rick for 10 years or more and was blessed to do business with him from my motorcycle shop as well as tire distribution business located in Torrance. Rick was always happy and very pleasant to be around. He also would go to great lengths to help others out. May God Speed Rick, you will be sorely missed. Dennis Smith
Thank you Uncle Sparky for every wonderful thing you did for me and with me... I'll miss you so much!
