Rick’s Story

Site created on April 26, 2020

Rick was playing video games with his daughter Rory on Saturday, April 18th when he collapsed from a heart attack.  Despite efforts to immediately revive him, he suffered an anoxic brain injury, which means he went longer than 4 minutes without oxygen.  This is his Caringbridge site to keep everyone updated on his recovery.
