Rick Christian (aka the Rickster) passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on November 2, 2018. He was 62. Rick had a wonderful sense of humor and quick wit, charm, and a huge personality that made him the life of the party. He loved surfing, the ocean, fishing, the Redskins, dogs, classic rock, classic cars, and a good demolition derby. He also loved history and watching the history channel. In his early years, Rick travelled with his family throughout Europe while his dad was in the Army. As a boy, he was a boyscout and in high school while his family was stationed in Germany, he enjoyed playing football and wrestling. After his family returned stateside, Rick graduated from Fort Hunt High School in the Mt. Vernon area. Rick was a talented carpenter and painter, a perfectionist in his work. Rick loved his many friends both lifelong and more recent. He was described as having a "heart of gold” and never turned down a request for help no matter the day or time. He was truly one of a kind. Rick is preceded in death by his mother, Adelaide (1963), his father, Ltc (Ret) Richard S. Christian (2012), his Uncle George Christian, Aunt Jean Christian, and cousin Tom Christian. He is survived by his step-mother, Julita Christian, sisters Karin Christian (Garry) and Melanie Hendricks (Ken), nephew William, nieces Isabelle and Kate, Aunt Connie Christian, and cousins Patty Christian, George Christian and Paul Christian, all of whom loved him very much. >>>>

Rick and I were roommates back in the 80's. He was a good guy. Always willing to help out a friend.

Rest in peace dear friend. I enjoyed reminiscing about the Ft. Hunt days with you this Freedom Fest. Here's a picture I took of you and Scott at a table. You will be sorely missed.

I can remember so many great times we had at Ricks house near Kings Hwy. We laughed and partied all night long.
I remember Rick always had a smile on his face and had a heart of gold. RIP my friend 💕
