What a great athlete and hero! He was a tremendous asset to our Air Force Academy Class of 1961. I will always remember him as an honorable man of many talents. God Bless his soul and his loving family.

We lost a fine man! He was there for everyone. USAFA classmate and friend.
Bob was always a guy who made his classmates and friends better, just by setting the bar so high. He was a man to admire and try to emulate.

What a loss to our class!
Dr. Thomas Brickey, and family: I am so saddened to see of the death of your father! He, as I indicated while in the dental chair, was my closest friend's hero. When I met my friend Gordon, at Highland High, he spoke many times of your father, Mrs Brickey's son, and his enrollment at the AFA. My friend served as an AF Officer, but not as a pilot, as his eyesight did not qualify him. But he worshipped your father, who was certainly a hero, and a person to aspire to. See you next month.

Bob Brickey has always had a very special place in my life and in my heart. I never knew my father - he was KIA in Vietnam when I was 5 - but Bob brought him to life for me with his friendship and his stories of their antics and football accomplishments. I will never forget meeting Bob in 1986 in front of the then Pan-Am Building in NYC. I came out to the street to greet Bob, not knowing what to expect. He had the largest smile on his face, and broke down in tears upon seeing me because he said he was seeing his long lost friend Monte Moorberg in the flesh again. I was quite moved, and so began our friendship. God Bless Bob, and his family, and his USAF Classmates. A very special man who touched all who had the privilege to know him.

No better friend.
We say good bye, for a season, to one of the finest men I have known. Bob and I left on the same DC-6 from Salt Lake City to Denver on July 4, 1957, to become USAFA Cadets. We were both 18 years old. Loved him ever since.
Jan and Family--
We offer our sincere condolences for your great loss. We feel your pain also. Because of Bob's deep spiritual strengths and beliefs, we know, as you do, that we will see him again. We will miss the celebration of his life due to out-of-state commitments. But please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
