I have only known Rick for 4 years. I meet him while playing Euchre at Ripcord Bar on Saturdays. He didn't play very often and most of the time he was just visiting the people at the bar. Through conversations with him, I came to enjoy his humor and his insights on many events. I actually would look forward to seeing him. The last few years, his visits became fewer, which made them more precious to those who knew him. He was a class act and always remembered peoples names, even those he only met a few times, and people do pay attention to that. I will miss our Saturday conversations, but I know he is in a better place now. My heartfelt prayers go to his family and all those who came to know and enjoy the person that Rick Johnston was. I can easily say, I only have good memories of Rick and am glad I got the chance to let him enlighten my life. Till we met later, my friend.
