Title: Farewell to Rick Rountree
Post by: livewire on December 24, 2016, 01:00:39 PM
Our community has lost a great man.

MT member Rick Rountree (his actual name, and MT profile name) passed away on December 19th.

Services were held a couple days ago.

Rick was the post Commander of the Maybee VFW, and a 20 year veteran of the US Air Force.

I don't know if any of you remembered him or not, but I think he should be remembered.

Rest in Peace, my friend.

Rick's Dundee Internet was our first internet service when we moved to Dundee.  Oh do I miss dial-up ----  (not).  When I would go to the office, he was very patient and willing to help with any repairs or questions.

I do know Rick was the President of the Military Veterans Motorcycle Club in Maybe  I work with one of the members and he was devastated when he was informed of Ricks passing.  Thank you for your service, SIR

I worked for Rick and his wife at Dundee Internet. He was really an intelligent and fun guy to be around.

There is a picture of him in this article.

He was in the 101st Airborne, I remember him telling me that and the pride he had being a member of that illustrious group.

Thanks, Flip.  I have big plans for London Township.

I have a plan to bring water to some areas that want it, at an affordable price.

I will be overseeing desperately needed revisions in our Zoning Ordinance, protecting all of our residents.

And I have a few surprises in mind for the future...   ;)

Best of luck - it's a frustrating job at times.

How about a safe haven for newly retired prostitutes of Latin heritage to adjust to sex for fun without money exchanges?

Rick was very patient when I was a novice and talked me through fixes via a landline several times (Win 3.1 times).

And as he was former military I believe he's probably grinning down at your banter.

But IMHO I think the thread drift is forgetting the point of the topic.

Clean up some blight?

I might think about London Twp - if some of the.....  questionable landowner practices got under control.

I would hate to build my neat and tidy compound only to have someone move in next door and start their own junk yard.

That would be a long way to drag a van with a seized up engine.....  Something about sugar if I remember correctly?
