On Sunday, June 6, 2021, Richard Alan Mohr, loving husband and father passed away at age 61. Rick suffered a heart attack while playing golf at Quail Lodge Golf Course. Rick was born in San Francisco, CA on July 27, 1959 to Jo Ann Patricia Fritz and Richard Alan Mohr. Rick is survived by his wife, Rhonda Mohr, and children - Tanner Mohr, Samantha Richards, Dakotah Mohr, Brittany Mohr and Matthew Richards.

Rick was a star football player at the University of California at Davis. While at Davis, Rick played in the Knute Rockne Bowl in 1977 (NCAA II Semifinal game) and the NCAA II Quarterfinal game in 1978. He was a four-year varsity letterman, outstanding freshman (1977), Defensive Captain (1980), Far Western Conference All League 2nd team (1979), Far Western Conference All League 1st team (1980), and UC Davis Outstanding Lineman, (1980). He lettered in Varsity track and field all four years in the shot put and discus. He was selected as one of UC Davis Chancellor’s Outstanding Student Leaders, (1981) and graduated with a degree in Architectural Design.

Rick signed as a free agent with the Green Bay Packers in 1981. Released after playing two games, he signed with the Toronto Argonauts in the Canadian Football League. He led the Argonauts in QB (quarterback) Sacks with 9.5 for the season. His team played in the Eastern Final game and then the Grey Cup. In 1983 Rick continued to play for the Toronto Argonauts leading the team in QB sacks, this time with 15.5 (still the 3rd most in their history). He was selected to the CFL Eastern Division All-Stars and the CFL’s All-Canadian All-Star team. His team played in the Eastern Final and the Grey Cup again, winning this time and securing a Grey Cup ring. Rick was chosen to play in the CFL All-Star game. In 1984 he signed with the Tampa Bay Bandits of the USFL (coached by Steve Spurrier). Part way into the season he was traded to the Oakland Invaders and played 2 games before he re-signed with the Toronto Argonauts and then traded to Saskatchewan Roughriders. He started all 16 games with them and led the team in QB sacks, with 10.5. In 1985, Rick continued with the Roughriders starting all 14 games and led the team in QB sacks with 10. In 1986, he retired from Saskatchewan.

After Football, Rick started his career in Security as a Security Systems Consultant in 1986 with Robert C. Hardy and Associates. From 1989-1991 he was the Principal and Founder of Mohr and Associates. From there, Rick stepped in as CEO and Managing Partner for Andersen-Mohr and Associates from 1991-2001. He went on to be National Accounts Manager for Siemens Building Technologies from 2001-2005 before joining HID Global in 2005; where he would spend the remainder of his career as the Director of North American Channel Sales / PACS.

Rick was inducted into the first-ever Analy High School Sports Hall of Fame in 2014 (Class of 1977). He loved golf, traveling, taking photos, great food and wine. He had fond memories of his lifelong friends and SAE brotherhood. He not only took a special interest in his team at HID and their personal lives but also his customers as many became close friends. He is remembered by friends and family as a gentle giant. He especially took pride in being a 3rd generation San Franciscan. He often told stories about sneaking under the fence to play golf at Harding Park. He will be missed by many and never forgotten.

I had the privilege of playing with Rick and being part of the Grey Cup Championship team in 1883. Rick made a huge contribution to that Grey Cup team, was a CFL allstar and a great teamate. He rose to the challenge in big games, and often delivered the QB sack exactly at the time we needed it. He was a defensive lineman and I was an offensive lineman, so it was not like we were best buddies. But I always enjoyed talking with Rick. His intelligence, passion for Jimmy Buffet, and his 'cool breeze' demeanor off the field, was balanced by an intense on field persona and a desire to be a champion. Rick has been in my thoughts every day since his passing and I fell at a loss knowing he has moved on to his next big game. With love and respect, Tom Trifaux, #50 Argos, 1981-86

I remember Rick not just being a great football player. He had a wonderful outlook on life.
Even though he played on the defensive side and I was on offensive side of the ball, we had several conversations about life after football.
Rick's always played his best when we needed a big play.
I was very surprised and disappointed to hear about Rick's passing.
RIP Rick

Rick was one of the good guys, plain and simple.

We worked at HID together and coordinated on special projects while Rick managed the Microsoft account. Our calls were formulaic: first, quickly resolve the crisis of the day via Rick’s unflappable personality … and then share family stories -- especially the updates on his children’s accomplishments for as long as was necessary to account for each of our combined brood.

You could hear him smiling throughout the call.

Peace to you dear friend, and the deepest condolences to the family.

Rhonda and Family,
Over 16+ years...what an incredible colleague, friend and boss for a period of time. Just one of the good guys...always a gentleman.

And, after moving on professionally almost 6 years ago we enjoyed our relationship as competitors. And like a little brother I'd chirp him every opportunity I could...and we'd love it, laugh and recall the old days working within Klutt'z crew...precious memories.

I'll carry him close to my heart.

My sincere condolences to the Mohr Family.
May Rick Rest In Peace…something he never afforded myself when competing against him…I’m sure I was a big contributor to Rick’s sack numbers and proud to say it!!!
From one warrior to another, may God hold you in his hands…
Deepest sympathies,
Matt Dunigan & Family

My sincere condolences to Rick's family and friends. Rick and I were rookies together back in 1982 with the Toronto Argonauts. Rick was always a class act, he had a witty sense of humour and was well respected on the team and in the CFL. I enjoyed reconnecting with Rick at the 1983 Grey Cup Reunion in Toronto a few years ago. After that, exchanging messages on Twitter and Linked In. He will be missed.

As a freshman at Davis, Rick stepped up and let me know what was what around the SAE house and constantly looked out for me. He was always the guy who asked " are you ok". Sadly the last time I saw him was on the golf course when I hosted him at Cypress Point and Pebble Beach. 36 holes in less than 24 hours and there was never moment when he wasn't smiling. RIP Rick, condolences to your family and those closest to you. Elizabeth
