It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Captain Rick Addicks, a revered member of the Ross Valley Fire Department.

After bravely serving the community for over 22 years, Rick succumbed to occupational esophageal cancer on April 12, 2024. His courageous battle against this relentless scourge demonstrated the same resilience and determination that defined his career as a firefighter.

Rick started his career volunteering at the Stinson Beach Fire Protection District and quickly made his mark, advancing through the ranks at Ross Valley Fire Department to Captain. He was also a pivotal member of the Marin County Urban Search and Rescue Team, showcasing his commitment to both his community and profession.

Rick is survived by his wife, Kristen, and his children, Skye and Casey. As we mourn, we also seek to honor Rick’s legacy in a manner befitting his tremendous impact.

We are calling upon the community, Rick’s colleagues, friends, and anyone inspired by his life to contribute to the Marin Firefighters Foundation, where we will ensure the causes Rick was passionate about will endure for year’s to come.

Donate today and be part of a lasting tribute to a man who dedicated his life to the service of others. Your generosity allows Rick’s spirit of selflessness and duty to continue influencing the world in positive ways.
