Bridges, Richard (Rocky)

Richard (Rocky) Bridges
May 10, 1958 – Jan. 5, 2016
Stanford
Rick “Rocky” Bridges passed away at his Stanford home after a short battle with aggressive cancer. Rick graduated from Stanford University in 1982 with a BA in Economics and was active in Kappa Sigma fraternity.
Golf was important to Rick. He was a member of his high school golf team, became a long ball champion, won a pro-am tournament, taught golf, ran a golf club business (The Clubfitter), and worked at the Stanford Golf Course and Driving Range.
He liked to cook, created the omg! energy bars for his father’s health, and later sold them locally after starting Uncle Rick’s Food Co. Wine was another passion…tasting, collecting, sharing, and making with friends.
Above all, Rick will be remembered for his calling in life: helping others. He knew so many people through golf, wine, and food and would take the opportunity to connect people to a better job, the right doctor, investors for new business ideas, a friend with similar interests. He made quite an impact on so many people.
Survivors are his parents Dr. Edwin and Marjorie Bridges of Stanford; siblings Becky (Rick Altman) of Pleasanton, Brian Bridges of Stanford, and Bruce Bridges (Cynthia Gaertner) of Los Altos; aunt Mary Pollock of E. Lansing, MI; uncle James Pollock of Macon, GA; and nieces and nephews: Erica and Jamie Altman, and Anson and Nolan Bridges.
A Celebration of Life is set for 10 am Saturday, January 23, at Menlo Presbyterian Church, 950 Santa Cruz Ave., Menlo Park.
