Rick was a big part of my time in Hartford and WWUH in the mid-70's and we continued our friendship after. Rick was smart, funny, talented and generous, always a story to tell. He will be missed. May his memory be for a blessing.

Rick & I worked together@ WWUH-FM in the mid-70's. He was always great fun w/ good insights to music, programming & life in general. We stayed in touch over the years. I'm sad that he's gone so soon. May he rest in peace.

I always liked Rick when I knew him in Hartford in the mid-'70s. He was at WWUH and was intensely into music. We stayed in touch when he lived in the NJ/NYC area in the '90s and 2000s. He lived in an apartment tower in NJ when 911 happened outside his window. He told me that he couldn't look out his window for weeks after.

We hung out once in NYC when he was working as an audio engineer at MTV during the time when we cared about it. Fun time.

A good man, gone too soon.
