It is with a great deal of sorrow that I share the sad news that Ric Fox died in a tragic accident while backpacking in Yosemite National Park. He was a husband, father, and his two Labrador Retrievers’ best friend. Ric and his wife Irma have been great supporters of our little magazine since its start. Always adding some witty comments and even a great recipe. When I last saw Ric, we were at the 2010 AKC/Eukanuba National Championships. Ric, Irma (his wife), our friend Christine Tye, my wife Lorraine, and my Yellow Lab Zeus were chatting about our great Labrador “kids”. The joy that Ric got from his dogs could be read in his eyes as he told us about his Labbies! Ric, you will be missed but not forgotten!

As a tribute to Ric, his family, his dogs, and to somehow celebrate his life I propose we all make Ric’s favorite Pasta Carbonara recipe on July 9th and post some comments about the recipe and your favorite memories of Ric.

    So sorry to hear about your friend. That is so sad! Even though I didn’t know him, I’m going to make Pasta Carbonara on the 9th as part of your tribute to him. God bless!

    I went to high school with Ric, at Whittier Christian. We graduated in 1976. He was a fun-loving guy back then, and even at that age took his faith seriously. He will be missed, but we take comfort knowing that he is with our Heavenly Father, and we’ll be reunited again one day.
