    I am deeply saddened to hear of Rick’s passing. He has been a friend since childhood. We worked together at WBBJ and we shared an apartment in Jackson, TN for a while. We grew up together and went to school in same classes. We especially had fun in 4th grade Miss Hortense Nuckolls room. In our teens years he gave me the fastest ride of my life in his powereful GTO one night..! We shared a love of music and jammed a lot in Jackson. Last time I saw Rick was at the “60th Reunion Bash” a couple of years ago. He looked great at the time and we had a wonderful visit. My condolences to his family and the wide network of friends and associates. He was a good man and will be sorely missed. RIP Rick…

    Rick and I went to school together in Bolivar, TN all the way from kindergarten through 12th grade, graduating in 1968. I have a “famous” picture of Rick, I, and three other boys doing a cowboy dance in the kindergarten recital! Saw Rick at the 2010 class reunion and had a good visit with him. Told me that he had some physical problems at that time but I did not know how serious they had become. We corresponded briefly after the reunion – Rick said how much he enjoyed it and called me a “good friend.” This meant very much to me. To Marlena and sons – I call Rick a good lifelong friend. May God’s strength and grace be with you in a special way during this time.

    Rick and I grew up together. I was a year older but he got me in the most trouble. By age 4 & 5 we ran off to circus and became water boys for the riggers. That was until his Dad, T.W. showed up in the patrol car and took us in. We drove poor T.W. and Martha Jane nuts for years after that. One thing after another. His mom was so glad when Rick got kids. She loved them all but knew now it was his turn to worry. Rick enjoyed life as few will ever know, he learned life the hard way most of the time, but always landed on his feet. What a ride!!! I am glad Debbie and I stopped to see him and Maurlene, the last time we were in Nashville a few weeks ago. Known him for over 60 years… and I will miss him.. until we are together again.

    I also was a 1968 BCHS classmate with Rick. I’m so glad he was able to attend our 60th birthday bash reunion. I still fondly remember listening to him DJ on Bolivar’s local radio station during our teen years. My prayers go out to Marlean and his family. God bless & keep you. He will be missed. RIP-Rick

    Praise for the Victory that Rick now has with our Lord, but so sad for the family that is left behind. Thankful that I was able to see him at our reunion in 2010. Prayers for the family. Linda

    There are very few people in this world that, when you walk away from them, you always had a smile. I always enjoyed visiting with Rick and hope to again someday. My thoughts and prayers to Marlene and his boys.

    Prayers for all the family. Rick was a classmate and friend. I saw him at the class reunion and visited with him at his business in Nashville a few times after that. He always made you laugh and lifted you up!! He once told me that he almost became a Methodist Preacher…I say he would have been a good one. RIP Rick, see you at the Great Reunion. Love and Blessings to all your family.
