Rick was a well-respected trainer at the Columbus Police Department and as a Founding Advisory Board member and International Instructor through the Monadnock Police Training Council. He made many significant contributions in the areas of officer safety and professionalism. His talents, insights, dedication, humor and professionalism will be missed by those who knew and worked with him over the years. His legacy lives in the work he did throughout his life. We'll miss you, Rick!

Hi Carol ..

Wondering if Rick's brother Paul was the same one who graduated from Hampton in 1970?

Like you ... sadly I am finding more friends and classmates in the obituaries than anywhere else.

Da Babe

   I don't know, Tom, but it certainly sounds like a viable possibility.  Thanks.

   Y'all take good care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll Always Have Buckroe!

                          Love to all, Carol
