Happy B-day. Hope all is well.
I have some friends who live in Jupiter and my brother Charlie winters every year right next door in Palm Beach.
What i most remember about Ric was the old '51 Ford that he had chopped up till it should not have even run, let alone be on the road. Another aspect of him was his avocation towards skydiving. He was one of the earliest jumpers I knew. Several of us went with him during one of his first jumps and his main chute didn't open. He pulled the reserve, but then the main also opened. That meant he had no effective control. He ended up landing in a lake about 3 miles from the target. He had to walk back to the jump site. We didn't see him for hours. When he showed up he had a big smaile on his face.
I also remember Jimmy Scuiter, primarily from St. Teresa. I'm pretty sure he was the first person from Summit to die in Vietnam. I remember his funeral at St Teresa's Church. It was huge. Virtually everyone in Summit turned out.
