So sorry to hear about Rick. I used to bowl with him in Newport, NH and he later subbed on my team when I bowled at Leda Lanes in Nashua. Always a great guy with a sense of humor. When I saw his obituary in the Claremont Eagle Times I was really surprised. I hadn't seen Rick for at least 12 years.
Again, so sorry to hear about Rick's passing.
