Rick Caul

Rick Caul died 48 hours ago, Wednesday, March 20, 6:50 pm. He fought for his life the past couple of years.
Ricky was the machine king, an artist of repair. He fixed with insight, economy and speed.
Ricky had a stern presentation but scratch the surface…
…he had a big heart. He was a generous man to work with, patient with those less skilled than he.
Ricky was a family man, he loved his wife and his boys.

I am deeply grateful to Adrian Pols to have had the chance to work at Eastham Engineering for seven years.(Auto Tecnika) Rick was a master mechanic. Adrian is a diagnostician without equal. They made a great team.
Rick got the job done.

I stumbled off the track to success in 1968, started chasing shadows that summer. Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.) I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.

  1. There truly is a kind of magic to finding solutions to our mechanical woes. It is similar to medicine. Study a complex situation and help it return to good health. Ricky was an unrecognized local hero to many. So sorry for his passing.

  2. Sorry to hear of Ricky’s passing. It’s been 30 years and I can still hear his voice.
