John Rickards
« on: Oct 03, 2015, 04:36 »
It is with great sadness that I report the sudden loss of my brother, John. He passed on 10-2-15 of cardiac arrest. He was 51.  He was a memeber of the nuke community in the late 80's and early 90's starting as a deconner and working up to senior HP. His post-nuclear life was spent in Central Florida doing what he loved, working in the music business. He leaves behind his 16 year old daughter, Alexis, 2 brothers Dave and myself, 2 sisters Donna and Lisa, and a mother and father. A service will be held at Grissom Funeral Home in Kissimme, FL on 10/10/15.

I am so sorry for you and your family's loss.  John was a wonderful guy and I enjoyed working with him very much.  He will be missed by many.  He was a great tech and I know how much he loved his music.  I enjoyed seeing his posts on facebook.

Bad news!   

Remember some good times with the Rickard "twins" on the west coast circa late 80's 


Prayers sent.

Damn Paul, I'm so sorry to hear this sad news. John was a good guy, he fit in nicely at Diablo back in the 80's.

Paul, so sorry to hear of John's passing.  I knew him at Diablo (of course) and also at CR3 in the early 90's.  He had intelligence, a zest for living, and humor.  In abundance.  A good guy.

Thank you all for your kind words. I just returned from Florida after saying goodbye to John. It was overwhelming the number of people that came to his service to pay their respects. I had no idea John touched so many. It was standing room only, just like when he would perform.
