Gifts in lieu of flowers may be made in Rick's memory to the Veterans of Foreign Wars (https://www.vfw.org/) where Rick was a longstanding member and supporter of veteran's affairs.
Rick grew up in Roslyn, Pennsylvania and was an avid football player and fan. He graduated from Abington High School in 1978 and attended Shippensburg University. At Shippensburg Rick was a member of the Tau Epsilon fraternity where he made many lifelong friends. Rick graduated from Shippensburg in 1982 with a bachelor's degree in accounting.
In his twenties, Rick joined Standard Pressed Steel Corporation, rising from the factory floor to become a sales manager. He worked in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, Hermosa Beach California, and Seattle Washington before leaving SPS and moving back to the Cape May area. Rick held a number of positions after SPS, but best loved being self-employed.
Rick was an avid fisherman who loved nothing more than getting on a boat and spending the day casting his line. He was also a fan of all the Philadelphia teams, especially the Eagles and Phillies and would enjoy sitting in the Cape May VFW with friends to cheer his teams on.
Rick was a gentle, kind, and happy man, who was always willing to help others and never complained, even as his health declined. He will be missed very much by family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors.
