Richard “Rick” Apt – 69 of Linwood, passed away peacefully on December 21, 2018 in Somers Point with his family by his side. Rick was an extremely intelligent raconteur who never failed to make his audience laugh. He grew up in Margate and attended ACHS and Temple University and was an avid book and film collector. Rick was the owner of Atlantic Careers Employment Agency for many years but his love for Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack led him to a career as one of the world’s premier Sinatra memorabilia dealers, and “he did it his way”. Rick was a lifelong sports fan with a particular affection for the Phillies. Unfortunately, he felt the same way about Tom Brady. He was predeceased by his parents Edward and Dorothy Apt. He is survived by his loving sister Linda Mierzwinski (Hank) and beloved nephews Matt Mierzwinski (Alissa) and Dan Mierzwinski (Kelly). He is also survived by lifelong friends, Rick Ackerman, Bill Monsour, Joe Amodei and special friend, Bev Gaughan.
