Rick was a real friend. We went to many concerts together. The first one was Black Sabbath , Iron Maiden and Judas Priest in Baltimore. Hung out many many times . We grew up across the street from each other. I use to hear him playing his Gibson Les Paul. Rest in peace my friend.

He would ride his motorcycle all year long. During the winter, it would take him 15 minutes to put his gear on. Loved his laugh.

The first night I met Ricky was at a party at Laura Smiths house. We had a case of the munchies so Ricky decided to make a pizza. He pulled all sorts of stuff out of the fridge and cupboards. He put at least 20 different toppings on it! I wish a picture existed. We had a great time that night.
