I met Ricky at Delta in DFW, and later scheduled his agents. Always kind and with always a smile and great sense of humor. He knew how to resolve conflicts with style. Once you met Ricky, you will always remember him. Prayers to his family.

It was very nice working with you at IAH . We had great time working together,
I am very sad that we did not get the opportunity to meet at Starbucks and catch up. As per your last message to me.
I will keep all your text messages as my memory of you.
But here is someone once said
It is not the length of life but the depth of life
My good friend...

Ricky always cared for and helped his fellow coworkers. He was great with our customers when they needed assistance. We missed him when he retired from Delta and now . He always spoke so fondly of his children and family and send our deepest condolences.

Rick and I started together at Delta in 1983. We were in cabin service which is were we all started back in those days and as many
of the names I see here in these memory's of Rick we all can agree
we were like a family and we all did things together no matter what shift we were on. Like payday nights at grapevine lake, pool parties at Kestersons apt. etc... I moved away in 1987 but Rick and I kept close on the phone for few years but as time went on that slowly faded away too. I have never forgotten those early days at Delta thru good times and bad. Those days would not have been the same
for me and many others without Rick. Thanks for the memories.

He Was Search A Nice And Wonderful Person
To Work With. When Ever I Was assigned To
The Gate To Work Flights, And Rickey Was Assigned To That Area As Passenger Service Agent , He Would Meet The
Inbound Flight, Assist Me In Boarding The Outbound Flight, And Sometime When Time Permitted
he Also Dispatched The Flight For Me. It Was
A Pleasure To Be his Co worker And
Acquaintance with Such A Great Person.
Prayers 🙏🏽For Comfort, Peace And Strength
