    Default Rick Brown

    The Yankee Chapter has lost another member on Friday, Rick Brown from Ct. Rick has been a member of the AMCA for many years, and has come back resently with the zest he started collecting with. I'm lost for words, I'm glad we spent the time we did together@ Oley this year--he will be missed!
    Godspeed my friend,you have been taken to soon!

    I saw him at Hebron roughly 2 months ago. I asked him how he was doing and he said everything was going OK.
    He was a great hard working honest guy and never had anything bad to say about anything or anyone. 46EL

    Ric was only 47. I just got my Hartford Courant newspaper and his obit is published there today. Again sadly, for the second time in only a few weeks is there anyone out there that can do a google search for it and post a link to here it so everyone interested can read it. Thanks in advance, Jp.

    Wow I get back from Jefferson to hear more bad news Rick was a strait shooter at the hebron meet he showed up with a couple of bikes he had just picked up,the next meet I saw him at he was trying to set up a deal to buy a Goulding side car I picked up at davenport years ago when I told him it was still hanging in the same spot where I but it 25 yrs ago he wanted to look at it, knowing I would not be selling it he still wanted to get a look, Wish I had him over sooner. Rest in peace Rick

    Wow that really does suck. Rick was down at my place about 7-8 years ago and he bought a 41 servicar. Hard pressed to meet a nicer guy and we had a real good time. Then I did not see him for years. Makes you think when you dont see people we should reach out more and see how they are doing. The big C took another at such a young age and had I known he was sick I certainly would have loved the opportunity to see him again. If you go to the funeral home site listed in the obituary there is a nice video tribute to Rick for those who may be able to put a face to a name. Rick had that sidecar in the video at so many meets awhile back, he flat out loved it. My prayers go out to his wife and young kids. Godspeed Rick.

    Rick was the kind of guy that if he wanted something he came over looked, paid and left. Next thing you know he would be riding it all over hell. I give him credit as one who did what he wanted and enjoyed himself doing it. He was a real nice guy and we lost another Yankee Member way to soon. RIP Rick.

    I met Rick at Oley this year, talked with him at Rhinebeck. Even while He battled His ilness He kept moving forward. He recently was buying a Excelsior or Henderson with a side car, that's why He was selling His awesome original Silver Arrow. There's not too many guys like Him left anymore. God bless Him.
