RIP Bill Ricco

Unread postby Squints » Thu Aug 27, 2009 10:20 pm

I normally don't do this type of thing, announcing news and especially deaths and I didn't want to put it in the pop culture section next to threads labeled hilariously awful videos, but a great man has passed away today.

With over 2000 registered members of TCF, I'm hope I'm not the only one who went to Walsh Jesuit. Mr. Ricco was principal when I was there (Class of '95) and more notably started the school's football program. The man is symbolizes Walsh. My favorite memories of him were showing up unnanounced at a retreat and sharing his life story, deeply inspirational and going to lunch with him one day at the Tangier's club in Akron, a pretty down to earth and real man.

RIP Mr. Ricco, you'll be missed.
