UPDATE

It is with the sincerest regret to inform you all that Rick (Silver) passed away early this morning. Fran was by his side and Rick went peacefully.

Rick

I know you'll be watching down from above guiding us to do things the right way rather than our half baked approach at times!

You'll be sorely missed mate!

Our sincerest condolences to you and the family Fran. He was a wonderful man, and will not be forgotten as a valued friend and mentor to many of us here.

Truely sorry to hear this news, from my family please pass on our condolences at this time.
when someone passes it looks like this eg 1944 - 2012, what most people miss is that dash in between.
RIP Rick

Very intelligent man as many of you would know after meeting him. To be so open and kind to members at meet ups and still battle this thing head on is a true credit to him and his courage should and I am sure does make his family very very proud. As Scott mentioned on the first post, Rick was a factual member and if there was anything that needed research whether is was legal or not he was always happy to lend an opinion. I am sure though with Big Rigs hand we will see Fran and Eliza out and about on many more meet ups to come.

I know your looking down on us from a better place Rick, but it is with a very heavy heart I say goodbye. I had the absolute pleasure of meeting you and getting to know you, and can only hope I can become 1/2 the man you are. The way you carried yourself prior to and throughout your poor health is nothing short of amazing.

Deepest condolences to Fran and Eliza you will be in my thoughts.

I'm a bit stunned by Silvers passing, got home from a good day out with my Dad and saw the thread.

Roofy dropped in here on his way back to Vic and spoke of seeing Silver and how pleased he was to see you blokes visit him.

Similar thing happened when I last saw my father-in-law, left him in good spirits for the last time.

Sounds that is what you all did, and that is absolutely awsome.

My thoughts go out to you all; family, friends, forum buddies he met in person and online. You all are part of his life and he is part of yours.

RIP Silver.

It sadens me to say fairwell to a top bloke.
May you now be at peace Rick, you will be truely missed.

Regretfully, my sincerest condolences To Fran and family, and Ricks close friends,
My thoughts are with you all. Stay strong and be there for one another.


Scotty as you were obviously the closest member to Rick and his Family,
I know how draining a fight like this can be both mentally and physically as well as financially,
Would i be out of line suggesting we take a up collection on behalf of NISSANPATROL.com to help Fran and Eliza out through this stressful time.
Just a thought as i know first hand how draining it can be.

rest in peace rick you will always be remembered and in our thoughts you will live forever

To Fran and the Family our deepest sympathy and our thoughts are with you.
It is obvious here, Rick was a Man held in high regard.
The positives are as threedogs said "is that dash, 1944 - 2012".
Reflection of the good and bad times spent with our Friends and Family will ease our sorrows, and in the end put a smile on our faces.

Cheers to Rick.

Fran, I know Rick only wanted us to celebrate his life, and we will always remeber him as a gentleman here. I know we will also continue to see you as part of our forum family. I may not have not got to know Rick really well, but, any of us who have been to a forum meet at Scott and Sandras, know we are all friends.

Rest In Peace Rick.

Has anyone spoken to Silvers family, just to see how their going. And that we still think if him. Cos it is hard when you lose your own member of your family.


Never argue with an idiot, cos he'll bring you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

One year has passed already, Monday just gone.

I was thinking of some flowers for Rick's Family from the forum.
We just need a member who knew Rick's family to deliver, or organise something.
Ill put $10 towards it.

I never had the good fortune to meet Rick and this site is full of praise for him. What about as part of his passing he should be celebrated here with some pics and stories of the guys that knew him. I'm sure there would be some good adventure stories to tell :)

Hi folks,

Another year has passed and we would like to keep the tradition going by giving Fran some flowers.

I will be using the money that the forum sponsors have generously given to the forum for this so we are not asking for money, only to remember him in coming weeks.

Some of the newer members would not have known nor even met Rick but take some time to read this post and some of his other invaluable threads to the forum.

Ill keep this updated with our gift and more information in coming weeks.

Good on you AB, I often see posts from Silver.

I'd like to suggest changing his status under his name to say R.I.P. and/or something in his sig line to advise members who read his posts that he has passed. It will help some reflect on what a great contribution he made.
