We have been friends whether in close contact or not, since 1975. We were the closest and farthest of friends over these years. Through all of this, your presence and wisdom has always been felt. You touched and affected many lives including my own and you will be seriously missed.
My heart goes out to your siblings as you were deeply loved and you loved them deeply. I say goodbye to your physical presence Rick, knowing your spirit will be with me always. Love, Tom
My heart is filled with sadness as I just saw the loss of Rick. I knew Rick for many years and did the financing on his properties. He was a wonderful man with a very endearing spirit. He will be missed by myself and my heart goes out to his family. Best wishes. Lisa Ferro
Rick we started out as co workers and ended up as friends. I am sure this is the same story with everyone you have ever worked with. You where the most likeable guy I have ever met. I will miss your optimism, you never saw the down side always up. You were always looking forward to the next challenge. I have so many memories that make me smile when I think of you. Thanks for that, and thanks for showing me that just because you are going through a difficult time it doesn't mean you can't laugh and live life the way you want to live it. I still cannot believe you jumped out of a working airplane for fun!! To my most amazing friend you are missed.
In all of my years with Merrill Lynch, there are only a few people in a managerial position that were worthy of the title. And Rick, you are at the top of the list. You were always greatly revered by your peers and although your physical presence will be mised, your kind soul will live in our hearts forever.
