Please accept my sincere condolences. I met Rick at Ft. McClellan, Al after I returned from Vietnam. We worked together in the emergency room at Noble Army hospital. It was a very active emergency room and we were very busy most of the time. Rick was very well liked by everyone and always seemed to be like a big brother to everyone and always seemed to have the right answer for everything. I lost track of him and finally found him on Facebook. I was saddened to here of Rick's illness, but admired him for the way in which he carried himself throughout his illness and the strength he displayed. He was very well liked by all and I will remember Rick for his wonderful sense of humor and for the fairness he always displayed toward the treatment of others. He will be missed but never forgotten. RIP Rick

Barb, we were so saddened to hear of Rick’s passing. He was a wonderful person and my one and only mentor during my career. I learned so much from him. He was a true professional and a terrific manger. My days with him at Travelers were the best of my 34 year career. Please know that you and the family are in our thoughts and prayers. He will surely be missed my many. With Sympathy, Brian and Brenda
