Stunned and saddened to learn of Rick’s passing. 

Rick was a genuine, honest, and great friend to many.  A true Bay Rat.  The fish are likely rejoicing  

Love and comfort to Dinah and the kids  

Rest peacefully, friend

My heart always skips a beat when I receive an E-mail headed with  " In Memory Update."   Today I am so sad to read the name of a classmate that was simply one of the nicest guys in our class.  My heart goes out to his beautiful wife Dinah and their children.  He will be missed by so many close friends and his family.

This one hurts. Rick/Dinah and I have stayed in touch for over 50 years. He was my go to guy for keeping in touch about T.L. Handy & Bay City in general.

Shocked and sadden to learn of Rick's passing - he was a true and great friend. Our friendship started in high school and grew with many memories through the years.

Prayers of comfort and peace for Dinah and the family.

It was indeed a shock to hear about Rick's passing.  We worked on the last four reunion committees.  He was a diligent worker who would always call me first for any updates for me to make on our website.  He was patient, kind and one who took his work seriously.  We will miss him a lot.  My prayers are with Dinah and family.

So sorry to hear about Ric'k's passing. The last time I spoke to him was at the 50th class reunion. He was always up beat and so positive about his life and family. Thank God for the class reunions it seems like they are so infrequent and I always go away wishing I had more time to spend with old friends. I send my most heartfelt condolences to his family at this difficult time. God speed my friend.
