VAUGHN -- Rick Vaughn, 59, passed away on March 30, 2007. Designer extraordinaire, Rick made his mark on our city and state and was a founding partner of Vaughn Wedeen Creative. Rick lived in Albuquerque for 27 years and will be missed by the hundreds who knew him well, and by the many thousands who have been touched by him through his work in New Mexico, and throughout the country. A graphic designer by training and profession and recognized internationally for his work, Rick loved the art of graphic design. In recent years, he had applied his immense talent to the design of spaces and places, and that's where his legacy lies. His trademark designs include @25! and its signature giant exclamation mark, ABQ uptown and the Q tower, the NM Railrunner, Flying Star Cafes, the City of Albuquerque metallic city seal logo and bright yellow downtown wayfinding signage, and soon - the City of Santa Fe wayfinding signage. All these projects reflect the passion and love of life that he expressed every day. His first and abiding passion was karate. He achieved a second degree black-belt in Tae Kwon Do from the Texas Karate Institute. He was nicknamed the "Lubbock Flash with Cobra-quick Hands". He earned a rating within the top 10 in the United States. As outstanding as Rick Vaughn was as a designer and martial artist, it was no match for how outstanding he was as a human being. Nothing was as precious to him as his family and his love of God. He was quite generous at expressing and sharing his love with others and was felt by everyone he came in contact with. To know Rick, was to be loved by him. He treated his partners, his co-workers, his collaborators and his clients with caring and respect like very few can. Part dreamer, part engineer, all perfectionist, the artistic contributions made by Rick will be seen and touched for generations to come. Rick Vaughn is survived by his wife of 34 years, Ginger; son Ian; daughter Renee Ahern and husband Drew; grandchildren Dillon and Jackson; brother Barry and wife Gloria; nephews Paul and Michael; mother Clota Mae; step daughter Helen Wilson and husband Steve; step grandchildren Melissa, Sarah and Joe and the countless others that love him and will miss him dearly. His father, Chester, preceded him in death. Daniels Family Funeral Services 7601 Wyoming Blvd. NE Albuquerque, NM 87109 (505) 821-0010
