    Dear Joe, Ricky is a dear longtime friend to myself and family. He was considering coming to live with us this fall in South Jersey. Ernie and myself have been unsuccessful in finding anyone through conventional means. However, I’m wondering if therewould be any contacts in his newly acquired iphone. It was purchased for him by my wife and the billing is undre account and in our name. Perhaps, we could claim the phone and try to access his contacts or call history although we don’t know his passcode. Feel free to contact me Benny Corio at (If you know Benny Corio, email me and I can supply contact info.)

    Thanks, Benny.

    I talked to a nurse or doctor at the hospital last night. His phone was destroyed in the accident, but Rick practically lived on his iPad. There may be contacts in the iPad’s address book.

    Thanks, Bill.

    I heard from a few friends, but not from the family. The family was notified. I don’t know who got through to them. The decision was made to remove Rick from life support. He passed away yesterday at around 5:20PM.

  5. I am devastated to hear this terrible news. Ricky was very special and so important to me and my children when we lived together in Beau Rivage in the 1980’s. He is the most unique person ever.
    I connected with him briefly a year ago on Facebook and just tonight was trying to find him again. This horrible news is unbearable. Please inbox me on Facebook. I have photos I’m glad to share.

    Thanks for commenting. I think of Rick often, and even though it’s been months, it’s hard to believe he’s gone.
