I had a call a little bit ago to let me know a long time friend (more than 30 years) passed apparently this morning. I have no details, but I'll post as soon as I do.
Mr. Ric Shank, always friend, sometimes co-worker, sometime roomy...I will miss you my friend. RIP my friend. It's been an honor to have known you.

You obviously have no idea what the relationship here is. Ric, Pete / SloGlo and I have all been friends for quite a long time. Pete / SloGlo can say whatever he likes. YOU should show some respect!

I am truly saddened by this. Ric and I worked alot together, lots of remediation projects, D&D, even some plants back in the day. He always ranked high on my list of coworkers and friends. So many great memories. I'll miss you, Rest in peace Ric.

So sad,  :'(  Ric was a great guy! Met Ric on my first Jr. job at Beaver Valley, he took the time to patiently teach me the meters. I remember the day Ric and Gary Bowen invited me into CTMT for a tour; I grabbed my meter and excitedly flew in there…. At one point they asked “what’s it reading here” ……duh!!!  :o   Yes, lesson #1 Grasshopper… “Turn your meter on before coming in here” they stood there grinning at me and I've never forgotten that lesson. Learned a lot that outage, but what I remember most is the fact Ric was always a happy pleasant person to be around, always wanting to help someone …… and I appreciated that, as we all did. RIP Ric

I worked with Ric at Shippingport Decommissioning and he was great to work with and taught me a lot.
