So sorry to learn of Rick’s passing. I retired from the post office last year. I never worked with Rick and did not know him very well. But he always seemed to have a pleasant presence that helped make the work place better and special. My prayers and condolences for your loss. May fond memories be a comfort........Mike DeGregory

I have such fond memories of Uncle Rick when I was kid a we lived in New Jersey. We moved away but I spent many summers with my grandpa, who always made sure we spent some time at Uncle Rick and Aunt Linda's. I have such wonderful memories of playing games at their house, swimming and a trip to Atlantic City. He was so much fun to be around and I will miss him. Thinking of my Aunt and cousins during this difficult time. Much love to all!

Wanted to express our sympathy to your family. It was always a comfort having your parents behind us. I know my parents Jim and Eileen felt the same way. Rest easy Mr. Tilghman.........Scott and Neil Kelleher

Working for the Post Office, Rick an I had a lot in common...Not the same office, although at one time I thought he was going to transfer to Mt. Holly (but he never did)...He would stop by every now and then and talk to my neighbor and me...Nice guy...So sorry to read and hear this sad news...RIP my friend...
