My deepest condolences to Kathy and the family, I had the privilege to know Ricky for many years . Ricky was an amazing man who loved his wife and family dearly. I remember when he and Kathy met and how excited they were to get married, he ended up being an amazing husband to Kathy and father to his girls.. I remember the first day they brought Meredith to church after she was born , he was all Smiles . How exciting it is know that he has received his final reward and is sitting at the feet of His Jesus… I am sure it’s a beautiful sight !! Much love and prayers to the family !

I am so sorry for your loss. Ricky was a wonderful person and great friend to our family. We lived across the street from the Bushes for many years. He and my brother Glenn were partners in crime for over the years. My love and prayers are with you all.

Having had the privilege of watching Ricky grow up with Leon and Joe during their youth and then seeing his personal growth on his life’s journey are such happy memories. Knowing he was welcomed home by his dad and so many other family members and friends makes me smile.
Rest In Peace Ricky, we’ll miss you. Roll Tide my friend!
Love, Donna and Richard

My dear Bush and Hadaway family, I am heartbroken to hear of Ricky's passing.
Ricky was a genuinely good man, kind and calm. He told great jokes and had a warm smile. He was a very hard worker who supported and loved his family in extraordinary ways.
Kathy has been a devoted, loving wife for so many years. I can still remember Ricky and Kathy's wedding day. It was such a joyful, fun day. The church was beautiful but not nearly as beautiful as the wedding couple. Ricky was all smiles.
Ricky benefited so much from the love of his wonderful parents, Richard and Yvonne, and parents in law, Mr. and Mrs. Hadaway. He was blessed to have such kind siblings, and a large family that loved him so warmly. Ricky, the world needs more men like you.
May God bless all those mourning the loss of this wonderful man. Special love to Kathy and Yvonne. Your in my prayers and heart in this extremely sad time.
