Richard (Rick) Whitney Rideout '76
Horticultural Technology grad and business owner Rick Rideout decided to attend the Thompson School while living in Lindbergh's Crate (See story link below to read this great story) and his acceptance letter was what changed the course of his life. After graduating from TSAS, he became president and owner of Three Seasons Landscaping Inc. in 1978. During his 33 years of business Rick was known to have a talent for designing indoor and outdoor living spaces. He is also recognized for restoring the historic train depot in Henniker NH.
Rick lived a full life of adventure and truly was an amazing landscape artist. He traveled to many exotic locations, was an avid mountain biker, loved to ride his Harley and enjoyed skiing, golf, hockey and scuba diving. He was also a past president of the NHLA (New Hampshire Landscape Association). This page is in memory of Rick who recently passed away. The Thompson School is very proud to name him as a graduate and send our deepest regards to his family. To find out more about the man that Rick was, visit the links below.
