l have always looked up to my uncles. Their love of motorcycles, cars, music, and guitars as well as their passion for having fun made me want to be just like them. I looked forward to being around Rick and Geoffrey while listening to the stories that they would tell. I remember when my brother and I were little, Rick was given the task of babysitting us. That evening he introduced us to horror movies. I was about five or six at the time and was as scared as I could be. There were many nightmares and a newly found fear of the dark after that rude awakening. This is just one of many memories I have of Rick in which I look back fondly on. He was one of a kind and I miss him dearly.
