I am relatively new to this forum and never met v8Rick but given the sheer amount of help and support is evident from this forum he truly seemed to be one of the good uns.

I have read nothing but praise for V8Rick  and my thought go out to his family and loved ones.

RIP V8Rick, A man I would have loved to meet.

I understood that Rick was very ill, but still shocked of the bad news.

I never met Rick, and would have liked to.

My condolences to his family. I know how you feel.

Been there, when my wife died of cancer.

Regards

Deker

Aw no, came here to look up some bulb info and just spotted this.
Rick was a top bloke, really helpful and friendly. Had him out a few times for jobs on the deli, he even took it back to his for an extra big one.
my condolences to his family and friends
