To The Family Of "Power House"
He will be truly missed. There are so many good memories that we will forever be talking about him with fun and laughter. As a co-worker at Hillhouse I remember the day he came out in a cheerleading skirt and the crowd went wild. These are the kind of things that will keep us going.
House as everybody called him was a good guy who liked laughter, was concerned about people.

"House" I just read what you wrote in my yearbook. It made me smile
in " 73" and it brought a smile to my face tonight. Rest in peace.

Derek was the backbone of Hillhouse High School during the 1980's. He meant so much to everyone there. All who knew him have memories to treasure. I remember going to Derek because one of my students was being shaken down for money in between classes. Derek said he would do a stakeout. He found out exactly when and where my student was being asked for money. The next day when it happened, Derek was there, hiding behind a wall. It never happened again and the bully thought he just had bad luck.
May Derek rest in peace. Burt Saxon, teacher

It was with great sadness that my family learned of Ricky's passing. His smile could light up a room and his kindness from an early age to others will make him much missed. He and my sons participated in every sport together from "pee wee" league on. But my favorite memories are of the fish fries and homemade icecream at his Aunt Mary's house on Shelton Ave. Rest in peace Ricky.
