Ex-Senator Rick Blakemore was our friend. He was an excellent neighbor, good hearted, and decent person. Our condolences to his family and friends. Especially Angie Blakemore.

He will be missed by many.

Flew a few times with Rick when I worked for Sandia Corp at Tonopah. He was a great pilot. Used to land his small cessna in the parking lot at the tonopah test range. Truly a nice guy and someone I will always remember.
