The Raider Nation lost a great fan over the weekend when Ron Rickard passed away. Rickard was known for his consecutive games attended streak. "Raider Ron" attended more than 245 straight Raiders games home and away.
Affectionately known as "The General," Rickard was inducted into the Visa Hall of Fans after the 2001 season and was a member of the Bad Boyz of BBQ, who regularly compete in BBQ and tailgate cook-off events.
In 2014, Rickard was selected as the Grand Prize winner in the Oakland Raiders One Nation Your Story contest and won a trip to see the Raiders play the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium in London.
Our thoughts are with Ron's wife Janet, and his extended family – the Raider Nation.
