“It's been a few years since his passing but whenever I reminisce about my younger years and the Braves on WTBS, Rick always gave me comfort when he was on the mound. I so vividly remember Rick falling on top of San Diego Padres player Champ Summers to protect him from angry fans that were participating in a brawl at Fulton County Stadium in the 80's. That really blew me away that he was willing to sacrifice himself for the opposing teams player who could have been injured by some home turf...
“Rick, what a wonderful friend you were to me. You did so much to help me. Will
always be grateful. Will never forget your
wonderful smile. You were my friend RIP
dear Rick. Wait there for me.
Condolences to the Camp family. We lost a great friend.
“I am sorry for your loss. I hope you can find comfort in the words written at (Jeremiah 29:11,12)
“I knew Rick for a short time while we were in "camp" together. I learned from his light hearted zest for life. He will be missed in my heart.
“I played softball with Rick 89/ 90 at Acworth United Methodist I was saddened to hear of his passing great down to earth guy..And humble.
“When someone you love becomes a memory,the memory becomes a treasure. There are so many things I will treasure from our relationship. The years have gone by so quickly. What will I do without your daily phone calls. Our relationship has meant the world to me. You will be in my heart forever. I will see you again!
“I remember going to watch Rick play with my dad, Don Camp, when Rick would play against the Montgomery team. I now have a kid who loves the game of baseball and I have told him all about Rick. It would have been great to have introduced my kids to Rick. His legend lives on in my house.
