I never knew your son, but can appreciate these difficult times since I lost my father at his age 45, very suddenly. My thoughts & prayers are with you & your family.
I did not know you that well, but do remember fondly, the luncheon we had at a Cuban restaurant during my visit to Tampa as the Brokerage Officer of NEF.
Warmest regards,
Bill Moody

I just want to let you all know how sorry I am to hear about Ricks passing. I had the pleasure of going to BF with him and also work with him at the agency in Saugus back in the 90's. I will always remember Rick's smile and charismatic way. What a great soul!!!! Both my husband, Joe, who played ball with Rick at BF and I once again send our deepest sympathy. God Bless all of you, and may Rick rest in peace.


Our hearts and prayers pour out to you all on the loss of such a wonderful son,brother,and friend. Rick was a very special young man and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. We hope the outpouring of so many good memories and prayers will help you through this so very sad time.A

Rick, I will miss you so very much. Please watch over Cole as his guardian angel. You will always be his Godfather. I will remember the excitement in your eyes when we talked about our shared love of California, zip lining, and fond Gloucester memories! Rest peacefully and let us know you are watching over us from time to time. We will always be waiting! Love you, Nikki, Derek and your godson, Cole

Rick was the best man at my wedding and in his speech he talked about how I am so much like a Kaloust, and, after 12 years of being a part of this family, I know I am a Kaloust. This is how I know that Rick would be so pleased and so proud to see the way his parents and brothers and sisters have come together to hold each other up and give each other the strength to get

Hi Ricky,
This is Fia, even though we didn't spend a lot of time together, the time we did was very memorable, the time we met in Road Island, you said to me (come here sweetheart hope you can put up with her) and you hugged me. You were the first person that welcomed me (thank you), after that every time we were together that's how it was! Thanks!
Rick that was the kind of person that you were, loving and

Joyce and Eddie,

Was so very sad to see this post on Facebook. I cannot imagine the pain this loss has heaped upon you and all of your family. Know that I will keep you in my prayers, and in my thoughts, as you begin the journey towards healing.

God bless you all,

My sweet Brother,

You always tried to shield me from the pain. You were Always there.
You always called and ended with " I love you".

You can not shield me from this the greatest pain I have ever felt and you are no longer here nor can you call and tell me you love me. Thank you for giving me the gift of these memories.

I see your boat and its heading past the break wall into the Horizon. The
