For those who knew Rick and Blanca, word came through from Blanca via Facebook that today, Rick lost his battle with cancer.

Rick and Blanca were our founding Michigan Chapter Leaders and also led New Mexico for a short time.

Rick had a HUGE heart for people. He will be missed. Rest In Peace my friend.

Richard and Blanca, his best friend and partner, retired and left Michigan in 2007. They traveled in a fifth-wheel and volunteered in Arizona, Texas, Oregon, Michigan, South Carolina. As they visited 45 states and volunteered in many state parks. They volunteered for two seasons at Elephant Butte State Park. They decided to stay and moved to Truth or Consequences in 2012.

Richard had a lifetime love of travel. He loved to drive. He never wanted to stay in one place very long. He was friendly and welcomed everyone. He always wanted to be surrounded by friends. He left friends scattered across the country. Richard loved classic cars and restored several himself.
