I'm so very sorry of the loss of Rick. I didn't know him well, but heard him play and was blown away. We briefly spoke one night and I remember saying to him... I know who you are! :)
May God rest his soul in peace and his music will live on.

Thank you for having crossed my path and filling it with melodies, hugs, smiles, conversation and memories. I wonder if you ever really knew just how many lives you've touched in such a way. Until we all meet again, may warm hugs and well wishes fill the path of your new journey.

Rick was an excellent guitar player and a multi-talented musician. He was a class act and had ZERO ego. He will surely be missed play all of those who lives he has touched

Rick will be missed . My condolences to the Salansky family.

God bless.

To the family of Rick

I only knew Rick from his music. It was always friendly and fun. We had a few laughs at Freddys or Blue Goose. The last time I saw him was at Ernies we were both there to see Mainstreet Soul.. So very very sorry for your loss

I met Rick back around 2002 along with his cousin Mic when I was assigned to work on the GMT 201 program. (GM minivan program) Rick was my body harness designer. Rick was a great designer. He could model anything you asked of him. Unfortunetly, GM cancelled the program but we continued to remain friends and co-workers until the end.
Rick also had the gift of gab. He knew something about everything but unlike most people who claim that, he really
