    Rick was a good friend and my mentor as a medic with the Macedon Fire Dept. We unfortunately slowly lost touch after his move to Florida. He will be missed but I’ll have the memories.

    I am so sorry to hear of your passing. Will always remember you as the guy who made the fried eggs at the MFD pancake breakfasts … what I took over when you moved to FL. As well as the opportunity to photograph your wedding day with Kar. Rest In peace Mr. Dodge.

    Last time I saw your dad was in 1985 but he and Shari were just at that point talking about having another baby and then Eric came along.
