He loved everybody, a very giving and generous man who would help anyone out, especially his nieces and nephews. Ricky's heart was never full, always ready to receive people in his life. His grandkids were his passion and he was known as PaPa to them. Ricky enjoyed spending time with his brothers in the shop.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a grandchild, Bryson Pate Hewitt.
