It was solely through Rick’s efforts that the last Brother Jonathan expedition was successfully funded. His efforts include working with others on underwater forensics, maritime legal issues, as well as efforts to establish database information. His more unusual projects have included looking for the elusive Sasquatch and the Loch Ness monster.

He continues to be active in the local community where he has served as Mayor of the city of Puyallup, Pres. of the Korum YMCA Board of Advisors, Main Street Association, Puyallup South Hill Rotary Club and Puyallup Eastern Pierce County Chamber of Commerce. He has served on the Board of Tacoma Pierce County Economic Development Board and is a long time member of the Tacoma Yacht Club.
