Rick's name crossed my mind so I went on-line to see if there was any information about him and discovered he had passed. As an out-of-state student from Virginia at the University of Florida in September 1951, it didn't take long to find out who was the most popular man on the campus. It was Rick. Although I never had a chance to meet him, his presence was felt everywhere. I remember that 1949 light blue Buick that he owned. It was mostly visible parked near the dormitory where the football players lived but occasionally I would see him driving around with Joe-Joe D'Agostino riding shotgun. Of course he was fun to watch him playing football or basketball and he was a real asset to the Gators. Years later, in 1965, when I was living in northern Virginia, I went to a Washington Redskins - Chicago Bears football game and saw Rick play for the Redskins. It was good seeing Rick in person again. It was not a good night for Rick and I left the stadium sad. Rick paid his dues in life as exemplified by the remarks in this guest book. I wish I had met somewhere along the way.

I can't begin to say what a great man Rick was. I am proud and honored to have known him and call him my friend. Rest in peace my friend until we meet again. What a tremendous loss for everyone. My deepest condolences to Polly and the rest of the family.

I followed Ricks career as I was growing up. My father wanted to name me Rick but he knew it would be a big burden for me. Rick was my Dads and my hero.
Rest in piece
