    Sherry, Shane and I are so sorry to hear of Rick’s passing; he’s gone way too soon. He was such a good friend to us, whether at Rick’s or the golf course or meeting up in one of many places around the area. Rick always had a quick smile, a funny story, or a beer to share on the golf course. We always admired his business sense, the uncommon common sense he shared with Shane and many others. As a wife, Sherry, I share your loss of a good man, who you found later in life. Shane and I wish you, Jennifer and Cory, and Rick’s extended family many happy memories of Rick to warm your hearts.

    Rick touched so many lives through all his work and play as well, I knew him first when he began Rick’s Gas Bar, and then again at Sherry’s in Williamsburg, he had a teasing way that made you laugh at yourself and was always happy to have you throw something right back at him. We will miss him very much.
