Blue skies, dude.

We used to have this familiar exchange while on jumprun just before exit: Me; "Your my favorite instructor, ya know!" Rick; "Yeah, baby!!!!" Cool

Happy times. Dude, we'll look out for Set and the boys.

I never met Rick, but he was a former Military Freefall Instructor down here in Yuma, along with his long list of other accomplishments.

Your brotherhood certificate is eternal.

We will keep your wife and children in out thoughts.

Re: [Shark] Shindig [In reply to] Can't Post

Shit man, I just got current again two weeks ago and had the pleasure of jumping training and jumping with him for my retrain. We had a blast, and he was awesome all around. It hurts very much to hear this tragic news, and is very sobering to think someone with so much experience could be so unfortunate.

Blue skies Shindig, it was great meeting and jumping with you :(

What a fine man Shindig was. Always smiling, laughing, or telling a great story. And the proudest and happiest father you ever knew. And on and on...

This one hurts more than most. I'm left reminded of the phrase.."the good die young". If anyone hears of when the services will be please let me know, I'd like to go.

Re: [Shark] Shindig [In reply to] Can't Post

Shindig was so many things. Here is some of what comes to mind.

He was a leader of men. When he told a story it was not uncommon to have 10 guys listening intently.

He was an awesome flyer. When he videoed a tandem it was guaranteed that the student, the instructor, and he would have a blast in freefall.

He was a proud and good father.

He never had anything bad to say about anyone, but he was not afraid to let you know if you were doing something stupid.

He was full of positive energy and passion for life.

Blue Skies Rick. We will miss you man.

The first time I met him, he offered to do the video for my sister & I's first jump... he berated us later for not doing anything while we were up there (hhahaha!) we just hung on to each other the whole time... he was such a huge part of the DZ. An outstanding man, veteran, husband, father & skydiver.

Rest in peace my friend.

What an honor it is to have known and spent time with Shindig. I watched the video he put together after World Meet '06 and it reminded me of what an energetic, funny, all-around good guy Shindig was. I'm sad that you have left us, but am so grateful to be able to say you were my friend and teammate.

Shindig was a fantastic guy it seemed as I only met him a few times but he had a great personality from what I remember. He videoed some training jumps that my 8 way did down in Elsinore. Always seemed up beat and I am sure he has left a hole on the DZ.

Re: [Shark] Shindig [In reply to] Can't Post

Both the skydiving community and the community as a whole have lost a Great Man. These words are often used to describe politicians, athletes and world leaders. To often, these words are missing when describing men like Ricky.

A friend, a skydiver, a teammate, a husband, a father, a son, a Marine, a Sheriff, a joker, a lover of life and a lover of people. He created men; he saved men; and he protected us. Not because he had to, but because he wanted to. He was these things, and he excelled at them all. Ricky epitomized Greatness.

Set can be proud of her husband. His sons can be proud of their father. And we can be proud of our friend. We are blessed, and have become better human beings, for having known him for even the short time he was with us.

Ricky was a member of the GT Family, the Boardwalk Family and the Skydive Elsinore Family. His memory will be kept in our hearts. His love of the sport will be expressed in our flight. He will be missed. And his life will be celebrated.

Fly free my friend, the climbs to altitude are over.

Re: [Shark] Shindig [In reply to] Can't Post

I remember when Shindig video taped my buddy Paul's tandem jump... while he video taped our interview before the jump we told him that 10 other people had backed out... he turned the camera around to himself, looked it square into the lens and said "WUSS'IES"...
He was the first person to ever video tape me leaving an airplane into the beautiful blue sky... he was my second coach in the wind tunnel and I can honestly say I will never forget the man...

Blue's Shindig...

Re: [Shark] Shindig [In reply to] Can't Post

This was a wonderful service, and for those in attendance, the story about the sheriff's academy instructor getting all wound up by the "shrimp" that wouldn't polish his boots was the best I've ever heard.

Shindig was already a retired and decorated Marine, HALO instructor, former DI, and a whole slew of other accomplishments, when he reported to the Sheriff's academy. "The Dude", as the much younger academy instructor called him, would not polish his boots. The Sheriff's Academy instructor let this get under his skin. It bothered him to the point that several weeks later, he could not sleep, so he got up, turned on the Discovery Channel, and saw a special on HALO: Freefall Warriors. We skydivers were already in stiches, we knew what was coming.

This instructor said, "And suddenly, on TV, was that dude." Can you imagine that? A student who so gets to you that you cannot sleep, you turn on escape TV, and there he is. The Dude.

A marvelous, wonderful, and heartbreaking ceremony. I watched from the ground the ash dive, and fly by. One of the most poignant tributes I've ever seen. I cried. I watched his kids play, and I cried some more. I watched my mentor in the sport hug and kiss the widow in front of me, and break down. Then I stepped up to pay my respects, and Gage, the older son and de facto man of the house at seven, took my offered handshake and turned it into a skydiving handshake. I cried.

I told everyone around me that was the way I want to be remembered.

A wonderful job by the Elsinore family, and I am left otherwise speechless.........my two cents.

The shindig for our beloved Shidig was quite a shindig! His memorial service was honorable, beautiful, funny and sad. I was amazed at the turnout. He is loved by so many! His ashdive was incredibly beautiful and I'm so happy his wife made her first tandem. The smile on her face said it all~She gets it! Looking at his photos posted around the DZ is comforting. Like he's there. Pat Newman did a wonderful job putting together his memorial video. I think we were laughing/crying all at the same time. I will miss him. I wish his loved ones peace and comfort.

Re: [jmpwme] Shindig [In reply to] Can't Post

June 21, 2010 marks the second year anniversary of the passing of Richard A. Schindler aka "Shindig" at Lake Elsinore. He was an inspiration to all that knew him he served 20 years in the United States Marine Corps. His military accomplishments are too many to list he quickly rose through the ranks, assigned to Force Recon, Drill Instructor, HALO instructor to name a few. Graduated top of his class in the Riverside County Sheriffs department, the man did not know the meaning of second place! I'm sure he is up in heaven making sure all the coverage on the pearly gates is squared away. His biggest accomplishment was his family my deepest sympathies go out to his wife & two sons. Your father & husband was an inspiration to all and his memories will go on forever and to all the lives he has touched.

Semper Fidelis the Marines have lost one of their few good men, gone but not forgotten! BSBD.

Definitely not forgotten.

Here's a video from March '08 of a friend of mine doing a tandem with Shindig as the primary videographer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YjxrsLr0IY

Yep.

I hope those two kids grow to understand what a special man their father was.

My buddy Don Mullenix asked me to post this thoughtful expression of Shindig...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------


I never attended any of the farewells for my fellow skydivers in the last few years. Between losses in my family and those in the skydiving family it has been very hard. When shindig and I jumped on the team together I was always calmed be his experience but motivated by his energy. He always got us to laugh and never held back when we asked his opinion. To this day I tear for his leaving as well as others who have left. I only hope that they are at peace.
