Rick Holman
I'm sure several in this area know Rick. Retired SEAL and long time Vice President at O'Gara. Anyway, he's got COVID and is in intensive care and on a respirator. I'm assuming he's in PA, but not positive on that.

1RiserSlip 16 April 2020 15:43

All Good Thoughts.

MixedLoad 16 April 2020 18:23

I only interacted with Rick remotely a few years ago but he was a real class act. I'm sorry to hear that.

Fred 16 April 2020 18:29

Hope he comes out the other side - concur class act.

Silverbullet 16 April 2020 18:34

Damn. If you hear where he is in PA, let me know please.

The Fat Guy 16 April 2020 18:46

Godspeed, Frogman.

Mars 16 April 2020 20:09

I'll certainly be praying for his complete healing.

Seanmcd82 16 April 2020 20:37

Rick is a really good guy, hang tough man.

hdjohn 17 April 2020 07:50

If he is anywhere near Eastern Pa, let me know if his family needs anything. I am 45 miles above Phila. I can be out and about without a problem.


Frog 17 April 2020 11:42

Rick is pretty tough -he'll pull through!

Gsniper 17 April 2020 11:43

Text to a bud of mine from Rick's brother this morning.

“Dr. Ko is cautiously optimistic”

airtoad 18 April 2020 14:02

Just got word from Bob Harward that Rick's still fighting hard.

Gsniper 22 April 2020 13:55

Update from a bud today as follows:

Got an update on Rick today. He had emergency surgery yesterday to repair a collapsed lung, his other organs are doing OK but they’re worried about long term care given his lungs “if he makes it”.
Not good but thought I’d pass it along.

schibbs 23 April 2020 09:11

I pray Mr. Holman pulls through this ....hang tough!

Miguel 27 April 2020 16:13

Damn. This sucks. Thoughts and prayers for him.

Denny 6 May 2020 14:14

Thoughts and prayers. This pandemic sucks

Maverick 6 May 2020 14:46

I hope he pulls through quickly!

Got this as an email today from a mutual friend.

Rick's Son sent a message that they’re taking him off the vent today and putting in a trach, decreasing meds to bring him back to consciousness in hopes his lungs will start to heal. He is now virus free but a long road to recovery.[/B]

Hopeless Civilian 21 May 2020 20:05

We'll be keeping him and his family in our prayers!

stearmann4 14 June 2020 14:25

Rick is a tough bird, glad he's on the mend.

Miguel 1 July 2020 09:26

Any updates? Hold hard Rick.

Gsniper 14 July 2020 12:28

Got this today ref how Rick is doing:

XXX and I talked for about a half hour last night and he said Rick is improving but a very long road ahead. The damage from the vent has him on the lung transplant list and what looks to be a long hospital stay. It appears his memory is coming back but still very weak and far from being out the woods.

Miguel 14 July 2020 13:28

Thanks Gsniper. Prayers out.

Frog 21 July 2020 11:30

Out of ICU and doing rehab

Mars 21 July 2020 11:33

Great news! Thanks for the update.

Don’t know the stud but he must be a rooster. Good news.

Gsniper 29 August 2020 08:27

Had dinner with Rick last night. He was passing thru Va. He's had a rough go of it. Says he lost about half his lung capacity, but he's got a good attitude about it all. He's in a wheelchair. He can walk, just doesn't have any strength back much.

AZ5326 30 August 2020 22:24

Thanks for the update.
