I received the following from Ricks wife shortly after his death.



Rick passed away May 17, 2006 due to lymphoma.  The initial tumor was located in the right atrium of his heart, but the general consensus of the physicians was that this was not the primary tumor site.  The fact that a tumor was inside the heart like this occurs 1-2 times per year nationwide.  The cancer did advance to his brain.  At that point, we knew that this had become fatal, but we had hoped he could have a little bit of quality of time with us. 


Rick is survived by his Dad, Gerry (96 hears of age), his daughter, Beth and her husband Mark, his son, Scott and his wife Dina, his sister, Bette and brother-in-law Frank, four grandchildren and myself.  He will be greatly missed by all of us.


If you need to have more information, please email me at my email address of:


I am still in contact with one of your classmates, Betty (Baird) Stone.  Betty and her husband, Lyle attended the memorial service for Rick on July 28.
