  1. So sorry to hear of Rick’s passing. I have known Rick since kindergarten and we were in Cub Scouts together and played on the same baseball teams for 6 years. We went all through school together. After graduation we didn’t see each other until we reconnected about 25 years ago as we both owned vintage Plymouth musclecars. We would see each other when he came back to Johnstown. I will never forget Rick and send my deepest sympathy to all. He was such a great person ! Dave and Carm Meiklejohn

  2. Rick and I have been friends since the 6th grade. I always consider him as my brother. We went through school together and even started in the mines the same day. We had done so much throughout the years. We always made sure that we called each other on our birthdays. When he would come to Johnstown, he would stay at my families house. He did accept Jesus as his personal savior and I believe that he is in heaven. Rick, I will deeply miss you and cherish all the time that we shared. Until we meet again.

  3. Rick was one of my favorite cousins. We played together as little children–climbed trees, swam in ponds, played baseball at family reunions, and our families were very close. He was so strong in his faith and fought with all his might against his cancer. Rest in peace, my sweet cousin.

  6. I will miss Rick so much. We were cousins and enjoyed time spent together over the years. From time spent at my parent’s home to reunions ,all fun times shared. My husband and family and I moved to North Tonawanda, N.Y.. and I would come home for a visit. I was fortunate to come home for a visit and Rick came back for a visit as well, so we had a wonderful time reminiscing. He fought so hard over the years with this horrible disease. He will be greatly missed. .He is up in heaven with God and pain free. Rest in peace “Ricky”. Love you Sympathies to his family.

  7. I have known Rick for over 50 years. I have never had a better friend. I always contacted him for advice and he always had so much wisdom to share with me. If there is an afterlife, I know for sure he is in heaven. I love you Rick.
    As always, your friend Karen

I know he was dealing with so much, he was trying to tell me just have faith in the man above, I’m dealing with this but he never was scared and always said it will be ok, I wish I had his strength. He loved his family and those adorable grandchildren he adored .God Bless you my friend R.I.P
