Just want to let everyone know about the lost of Rick Smith on July 8. Rick was a "old school" long time member of the CSBA. In 2005 Rick, which was also a co-worker, along with Floppy Hat (Brian Pilcher) introduced me to the CSBA. I attended the national rally with them at Deals Gap and joined the CSBA. Rick always rode a Kawasaki Concourse when I joined the CSBA.

a little background on Rick's condition..... Rick was a Greensboro Police Officer with Pilcher and I. Rick was diagnosed with early onset Dementia / Alzheimer's at the approximate age of 50 years old and shortly medically retired from the department. Rick was 58 at the time of his death.

I will always be grateful for him introducing me to the CSBA, which has lead to great experiences and meeting great people over the years.

The following is his funeral arrangements: The family will receive friends and visitors at McLeansville Baptist Church, located at 5205 Frieden Church Rd., McLeansville, NC 27301, starting at noon this Saturday, 07/11, with the funeral service to follow at 1400 hours. There will be a full Honor Guard and 21 Gun Salute.

I remember Rick as being a stand up guy, with a decent since of humor, even for cop.
Thanks for posting Matt. Really sorry to hear about his condition. I didn't know. Rest easy brother.
