Published in Sept. 13, 1995, issue

Ric died of a heart attack Feb. 22, 1995, after heart surgery at a clinic in Honolulu. He was 72. He had lived in The Plains, Va. and also had homes on the Kona Coast of Hawaii and in Sun Valley, Idaho.

He joined our class after attending the Greenwich Country Day School and St. Paul's School. Ric was a member of Cottage Club and manager of baseball, Major "P". After graduation, he joined the Marine Corps first as an artillery instructor at Quantico and then as an officer on Okinawa.

He subsequently obtained a law degree at the Univ. of Virginia and then joined G. L. Ohrstrom & Co. After his father's death in 1955, he assumed control of the company until his semi-retirement in 1966 due to heart problems.

Ric was a lifelong horseman and became interested in horse racing and breeding both overseas and in the U.S. He was also an enthusiastic golfer and regular participant in class reunions at Pine Valley. He was a member of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club in Scotland and as recently as 1994, participated in the fall competition in St. Andrews.

The class extends its sympathy to his wife, Allen Dunnington Rosse; his brother, George L. Jr.; his sister Magden O. Bryant; and his six sons.
