We are so saddened by Rick's passing, he was such a good friend. So many memories with all of our kids from Pop Warner Days all the way through Seabreeze Sports. Patrick and I will always cherish these, along with the 500 Races and the Wanee Festival. May he rest in peace now free of pain. Love Patrick & Pam McGrath

I knew Rick from so many friends and parties back in the day. He was such a big sweet soul. I know he is in a better place and heaven gained an angel. Prayers and love to his family and for all of us friends close or not he will be greatly missed.....
