    1. I am so sorry to hear of Rick's passing. I did not know him well but in my brief conversations with him as coaches of opposing teams I could recognize his passion for youth,sport and coaching. Can't recall how our games turned out but I remember discussing the experience for the girls/teams rather than the competition. All my best to the family.

    2. Rick was a great guy with a heart of gold. We worked together coaching the juvenile provincial girls team. Rick would do anything to help others. He wore his provincial team jacket with great pride. God bless his family.
