Rick was one of my favorites regular guest at longhorn. I will truly miss him. He and I talked for hours about sports and he was always asking about my kids and commenting on photos on Facebook. He was a good man.

On behalf of the surviving members of the 1960’s New Jersey “Rock and Roll” band, known once long ago as the “Fugitives”, we grieve the loss of Rick Hege. Rick was our “Band Manager” back then and his brother, Terry, was our drummer. Not only did Rick manage our engagements, he would also often lead our car caravans to “Band Jobs”, but he always seem to have the faster car. Or the fastest sounding car, I thought. I (Rob McGeary) personally remember Rick’s incredible souped-up Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport. He loved it. I admired it. It was thunderous and a joy for him and any of his passengers. Perhaps back then, ignoring the ages between us, all of us were just kids, really; but the shared memories we took from those times and adventures, for us who survive, the memories are still so bright and Rick is still there to us. On behalf of the surviving Fugitives, we have said a prayer for our Rick and Terry and their loved ones. Respectfully, Rob McGeary, Courtney Collette and Tom Beddows
