Support Rico's Legacy and Family

Donation protected
My name is Tim Moriarty, and I am raising donations for my Uncle Rico Priem’s memorial services and wife. On May 11 2024 Rico tragically lost his life driving home from a 14 hour work day. This was his second consecutive 14 hour day for the production company filming the tv show 911. After working from Friday at 2pm until 4:10am Saturday morning, less than 20 minutes from his departure from crew parking, his car was found rolled over on north bound 57 in San Dimas. Rico was pronounced dead on the scene.

Rico was an absolute legend in the film & motion picture industry. Many have told me he was hands down the best in the business at his job. He always made sure to take care of all of his crew members, as well as connect with everyone that was working around him on set. He could tell you stories for days, and his connection ran so deep with all of the peoples heart he has touched! It truly was an honor to work with him side by side, and I know everyone else who has worked with him feels the same. A heart of gold and a work ethic as strong as a rock, Rico served 30 years in the business with over 75,000 hours under his belt. Filing his paperwork only a few weeks prior, Rico was ready to enjoy his retirement, and planning to still work in the business to keep in contact with all of his friends and loved ones in the industry.

We are raising money for his funeral services so that we can honor his legacy and celebrate his life, as well as help provide support for his wife in these difficult times. No donation is too small and everything helps.

Life is precious, so hold your loved ones near. May Rico rest in peace.
