    Reading some of the other comments posted of Rick reminds me of the times we spent together near the end of our high school years. We had a lot of fun together. I recall that he and I did laugh a great deal and he was most often light hearted as well as good natured. Rick was game for anything fun or entertaining and at the time had a devil-may-care attitude.
    I recall a day when we were in the senior grade that we took an unauthorized departure from high school to go for a car ride to nowhere – just to be out of school. We did that at any opportunity that arose.
    We stopped by John Hartman’s house along Route 7 in Otego. We were leaning with our backs against the car, enjoying ourselves chatting, facing the highway and much to our surprise a car drove by honking its horn repeatedly. As we looked up we recognized it was Mr. Wilson, one of our high school Principals waving at us as he drove by.
    We laughed hard over that as well as did some time with in school suspension as I remember.
    That is how I remember Rick, just being a fun and good natured guy.
    I am sorry for his loss.
