The name David Rickerby rings many bells for skydivers that were around before the days of GoPro. You might actually have to go back to the time when Velcro on rigs was hip and cool to really appreciate the skydiving era he lived in.
Many skydivers can be described as one of a kind – but even in a hangar full of memorable characters, Rickerby managed to stand out. An incredibly talented artist, he decorated all kinds of surfaces, including many rigs. Some are still in service today, although their numbers are dwindling.
A memorial and tribute to this unique skydiving artist will be held at Skydive Deland on October 31st, 2014 from 3:00 PM until dark.
