Rick, age 76, passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 4, 2020. He was born on November 13, 1943, in Houston, Texas. He was raised by his loving parents William and Letha Marguerite Sheffield with his brother Mike.

He will be remembered for his big heart, love for his family, and sense of humor. He enjoyed a life of retirement, where he spent his time with his grandchildren, after many years shoeing horses, roping, and working for Harris County. His outgoing personality, his determination, his compassion and his ability to make you feel like the most important person in the room will be sorely missed by his family and friends.

He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Donna; daughter Samantha and husband Derric; daughters Stevi and husband Richard, Ricki, and their mother, Kathy; seven grand-children, Christopher, Paxton and husband Bret, Erica, Reid, Nicholas, Hank, and Wes; and one soon-to-be great-grandson, Alan.

We will celebrate Rick’s life at Cashner Funeral Home in Conroe on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at 2:00.

Ricky was an old friend, knew him since our high school days. He was always laughing, & playing gags.
Once my husband dropped our two boys off with my parents, as we were going dancing. He picked me up & as we headed out, someone in the backseat grabbed me around the throat & started choking me. I looked at my husband for help & he just laughed. I thought, oh no, he’s having me murdered! I began kicking the windshield & pounding the windows as hard as I could hoping someone would notice I was being killed. They did & were staring, so my husband stopped the dar, still laughing. Finally, the hands fell from my throat, & I jerked around to see who this maniac was. I should have known, none other than RICKY NEVITT!
I have an old home movie clip of Ricky trying the hula hoop for the first time. Wish I could show it here, would play a gag on him!

Goodbye dear friend...

Rick Nevitt always showed up for his precious daughter Samantha. He also made sure his beloved wife Donna had his help and support. Whether watching Sam cheer at Spring High games, or helping prepare Donna's classroom for her eager kindergartners every new school year, Rick was always on board. We knew him by his ear to ear grin, funny stories, and kind words. There is no one like him. He will be impossible to replace or forget. Prayers for his grandsons who have to go on without him now, and for his dear family who will love and miss him forever.
