Rick (Enrico) Recchi died unexpectedly on Friday, August 19, 2022, while doing what he loved to do most, playing his guitar.
Rick was born on November 21, 1962 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL to Esther Carney Recchi and Rick Recchi. He was what we call a complete surprise baby and son; which the whole family had always wanted. His parents and two sisters, Kathleen and Debra, couldn’t have been more excited to welcome him into their large Italian family.
At an early age Rick loved music and was eager to follow in his father’s footsteps as a musician. He began learning and playing guitar at the age of 12 and this became his passion. Rick was one of the best guitarists you ever heard play especially when he was on stage with his band, Southland.
Rick attended public school in Broward County and graduated from Piper High School. He attended the Art Institute where he majored in music theory composition. He also received a degree in videography.
For twenty plus years Rick was the owner of Trial by Video and during that time was involved with 1000’s of legal cases throughout Broward County. He became well known for his quiet, dependable and efficient ways of doing business.
Rick is survived by his sisters Kathleen Sklarew (Jay Sklarew), Debra Daniels, nephew Jason Sklarew and nieces Rachel Sargent (Mark Sargent), Catherine Anania (Vern Anania), Ashley Daniels and great-niece Shae Trawick.
