Rick died peacefully July 28, 2021, at home in Sarasota, Fla., after a lengthy battle with Lewy body dementia and other neurological disorders. 

A generous, compassionate, and loving man, he was retired from a four-decade urology practice in Sarasota, where he was a friend of classmates Dreher, Mitchell, and Towers and their wives.

Raised in New York City’s Stuyvesant Town, Rick majored in biology at Princeton, was president of the Bipartisan Society, and belonged to Dial Lodge. He went to New York University medical school, delivered the valedictory at graduation, and met nursing student Cindy Sharpe, to whom he was married for 51 years until her death in 2019. 

After medical residency at Mass General and two years in the Air Force, they moved to Florida, where Rick practiced at Sarasota Memorial and Doctor’s Hospital, was a director at SunTrust Bank, was active at the Child Development Center, and played golf and tennis. He avidly followed Princeton basketball. They spent summers in Lenox, Mass., and traveled the world, including a cherished trip yearly with the families of their sons, Robert ’92 and Jonathan ’95.

Rick is survived by Robert, Jonathan, six grandsons, and sister Nancy.
