In Memoriam: Richard “Dick” Ricker (1941-2021)

Dick Ricker, 2014

Dick Ricker at the "Farewell to the USS Saratoga" in 2014.

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of one of our longest-serving volunteers, Dick Ricker, on Dec. 19, 2021.

Never too busy to take on the most complex of projects, Dick was always there when you needed him. His quick wit and sense of humor were a welcome addition to every meeting, parade and event he attended.

Our project has lost a true friend, and our condolences go out to wife Maureen and his entire family.
