I was blown away when I heard about Rick's passing.  He and I were buds both at St. Irenaeus and at REHS.  We played basketball and football together, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a fiercer competitor or a better teammate.  He went on to win all-conference honors as a lineman in football, but lest we forget, he was a terrific basketball player too.  He was the star of our St. I team, and was a starter as a freshman and also on the frosh-soph team.  We lost track of each other for 40 years, but then we both attended the mini-reunion in the Rockies in 2005.  Then Rick hosted a Super Bowl reunion at his home in 2007, and we all had a blast.  I've got a couple of his professional photos hanging on my walls.  I'll miss you, Rick!  Rest in peace.
