    Rick and I began our friendship when we were at Fayetteville High School. We lost touch for some time but rekindled our friendship in the past two years. We got to go fishing together last summer and had a great time reliving old memories.
    I want to extend my deepest sympathy to his wife, Joyce, his sister, Becky, and brother, Chuck, as well as Rick’s family and friends.

    Sorry to hear about Rick. He was a classmate at FHS and second cousin once removed on his mother’s side from over around Kingston. Last time I talked to him, I told him I wanted to see him and he talked about even coming to Dallas to see Jimmy Lovell, another classmate, and me. Sorry, I didn’t get back up there to see him.

    Rick was my Babe Ruth baseball coach and his father Richard Mayes senior also, coached earlier Pee Wee and Little League teams that me and Rick’s brother Chuck played on. Rick was an upstanding, caring individual and my warmest regards go out to the Mayes family.

    I remember Rick coming to our house when I was young. Rick and my brother, Greg, were good friends in high school. I beleive they are together again, joking and having a good time, in a heavenly home. I remember Rickey singing his name to the Mickey Mouse club song. So sorry for the familys loss, especially to Chuck and my friend Joyce. Hope your short time together has sweet memories.
