Rick Simon ("Ricardo"), beloved by many, passed away on November 29, 2017. He was 48, born 1/23/1969 - originally from Miami, Florida. Rick lived in San Francisco and Oakland over the past decade. He was much involved in the community, including co-founding the Bay Area Community Exchange (BACE) Timebank, a bartering exchange system to help the local economy during the recession. He also participated in the Occupy Movement in SF and Oakland.
We, the members of the BACE Timebank, would like to commemorate his life, bring people together to talk about many of all the things Rick was involved in and cared about, and to do a volunteer drive in order to rescue some of his efforts.
Rick impacted a lot people’s lives, and we’ve been moved by hearing of his passing. This event will be an opportunity to benefit from his energy, by bringing to life some of the efforts that he is no longer able to put energy into.
Please join us this Saturday, February 10th, 3:00 pm
Omni Commons, Entrance Hall
4799 Shattuck Ave, Oakland, CA
(1/2 mile walk from MacArthur BART)
We could use help organizing this event. Please contact us if you'd like to volunteer. Please send us your photos of Rick, links to videos, your stories and comments that we may read at the memorial.
