Enrico - Rick, to all who knew him - grew up in the Port Richmond section of the city, graduating from North Catholic High School in 1970. After a car accident that sent him and his injured shoulder to a physical therapist’s office on Allegheny Avenue, he met the love of his life, then-receptionist Geri Inker - or as she was simply known in those days, Gypsy. Rick quickly became a mainstay in the Inker household, providing quippy Italian flavor to a secular Jewish family. Rick and Geri married in that very house in December 1979.
