  1. My sincere sympathy in your loss of Rick. He facilitated my hiring in the Gwinnett County Law Department, and we occasionally shared our experiences and memories of living in Buffalo, New York (as I attended Law School at the University of Buffalo School of Law). May he find peace in God’s arms.

  2. CandleImageThis is sad news, to hear at Christmas and to lose someone as nice as Rick. I enjoyed working with him all the years I was at the county along with some many people that cared and loved Rick. My heart and prayers, are with all the family and I know they will have so many memories to talk about the great man he was. God Bless You All.

  3. CandleImageSending healing thoughts to your family. I was fortunate enough to work with this lovely man for many years and I enjoyed every minute. Rick could always bring a smile to my face. He will be greatly missed!

  4. CandleImagePlease accept my condolences on your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Rick starting in the mid 1990’s when I was the commander of the Gwinnett County Police Department’s Professional Standards Unit. Rick worked closely with us to recruit and hire police applicants. He had a real passion for his work and it showed. He will be missed by all. God bless..

  5. Rick was a gentleman and a scholar. Loved the many opportunities we had to share experiences and he frequently spoke fondly of his lovely wife Linda, who my daughter was blessed to have her at Camp Creek. Blessings to you all.

  6. CandleImageI worked with Rick since he started at Gwinnett County and he was a true gentleman; honest and trustworthy. I admired my good friend and will miss him but I know Heaven is honored to have him. RIP Rick.

  7. CandleImageI was blessed to have Rick as my dear best friend for more than 50 years. Our lives were intertwined from our carefree college days to his passing a few short days ago. He and Linda introduced me to my wife Debbie. It was a visit to Atlanta in 1978 to see my wife and I that prompted Rick and Linda to make the decision sell their house in Buffalo to move to here. I am Godfather to Kelly and Rick was Godfather to my son Bryan. I will miss this true and dear friend more than I can imagine right at this moment. I, along with everyone else who knew Rick, were blessed to know him. He had a huge heart, big smile, a great sense of humor, and the guy always ready to help you out. He looked for ways to be a blessing to others every day of his life. Rest In Peace my friend. Love you, Jim
