Rick Peek, aka Make Me Some Bacon on these forums, a longtime member of the Celtics forums community here and in the prior site, passed away recently from covid. A great guy and huge Celtics fan.

Thoughts and prayers to his family. Please stay safe Celticsstrong members.

Ooof.  41 is far too young.  Rest easy, MMSB.  It's gut wrenching how many younger middle-aged people covid seems to be taking out lately.
