Richard Stanley "Ric" Bambic was born September 3, 1940 in Cleveland to Anne (Zajc) and Stanley Bambic. He graduated from Euclid High School before going to Ohio University, where he attended for about a year. While there, a girl named Charlotte Rowe would pass by his dorm room. Ric always told dorm mates that he would marry that girl some day. So, on January 11, 1964, while on leave from the U.S. Air Force, he did.
After serving his country in Vietnam, he earned a bachelors degree from Wright State University in Computer Science. Before retiring in 1999, he worked in Business Administration at W.S.U.'s Computer Science Department.
Ric was a giving and generous man who loved his family. He treasured the annual family vacations to Salt Fork State Park, Maumee State Park, and especially to the dude ranch in White Fish, Montana. He loved bowling and would often reminisce about his years as the H.S. Captain of the bowling team. Ric was an avid weight trainer and runner who ran in several marathons. He loved helping people. Ric was a monthly blood donor and formerly served on the board at W.P.C.U. He was a member of Hope Church for 30+ years, serving as an usher and a member of the Landscaping and Grass Committee, attending Men’s Bible Studies, small groups, and Senior's Sunday School class.
