A local Berkeley personality who has graced the University of California, Berkeley with his presence for years.

Rick can be easily identified visually by his ever-present straw hat and aurally by his distinctive singing voice, which is dreadfully off-key.

He seems to favor Frank Sinatra-era tunes, which he directs toward any passing young ladies who happen to catch his eye. Sometimes, if you happen to make eye contact, he'll invite you to sing with him.

Rick doesn't show up at Cal as often as he used to these days. It seems he was restricted from the campus following an altercation with another regular, and now only comes by one day a week.

He lives in Oakland near Lake Merrit.
