Rick Holloway came to town in 1980. He was a doctor who fell in love with Marianne Randolph and despite and affair with Blaine Cory in 1981, he and Marianne married in May of that year. She followed him in 1982 when he left Bay City to start his own private practice.
During his time away, he experienced some pretty significant loses. First, his sister Kit died mysteriously and then his daughter Ivy passed away. A grief stricken Rick threw himself into his work and his research has been noticed by Dr. Seth Wyburn, one of the nation’s most well renowned neurosurgeons. He has returned to Bay City to take a job that will allow him to work along side Dr. Wyburn.
