Rick Hamecs 1951 - 2024

The Overbeck Project notes with sadness the passing of Rick Hamecs. Rick was among the first project volunteers in 2001 and served as our pioneering webmaster. He was a supporter of the Overbeck Project for the remainder of his life.

Professionally, Rick was a financial economist who worked at the Department of Housing and Urban Development. the Mortgage Bankers Association and Mortgage Banking Service Corporation. To his friends and neighbors, however, he is remembered for the sense of community that he created, and for his great generosity. His concern and love for the neighborhood earned him the fond title "Mayor of 10th Street NE." He will be missed.
