It is always hard for me to add a Classmate to our "In Memory" page.  I enjoyed getting to visit with Rick at our first class picnic at Martha Lake Park in 2014 and our 50th Class Reunion.  It is always nice to see old friends at our MHS Picnics and Reunions and that is why I enjoy helping with the planning and organizing of our events.  Rest in Peace Rick, and we will see you on the other side.

Stan, I think it is hard for all of us to read of our classmates passing away, even the ones we never got to know well.  Not only does it reminds us of our own mortality, which we are all marching head-first into, but it also tears away a part of our past.  I didn't know Rick well, but I had classes with him and we had a friendly relationship.  He appears briefly in the April 1966 video shot during the fund raising week.  His image is a little overexposed but not so much that we can't see him as he was, a friendly, good-looking guy.  He appears at about 6 minutes and 40 seconds into the film (  My condolances go out to his family and friends, and my deepest thanks for his service to our country.
