Ricky was a loving son, brother and uncle. He cherished his family and friends. His niece and nephews held a special place in his heart. Ricky hated to see anyone cry. He would wipe their tears and say, “We’re not doing that”. Ricky loved horses, fishing and joking around with everyone. He dressed to impress always. His beautiful smile and big heart will be missed by all who love him.
