Ricki Paul Fish Sr.

A friend to many in the area will be greatly missed with the sudden passing of Ricki P. Fish Sr. 53, of Keene, NH and a former longtime resident of Swanzey, NH, on Saturday, September 5, 2020, at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, NH, surrounded in the love of his family.

His parents, Martha J. (Paige) and Ronald P. Fish, Sr., welcomed their son into the world on February 14, 1967 in Keene, NH.

Due to a tragic accident, Ricki’s life was turned upside down, yet his spirit, his smile, and his spark for life never faltered. He demonstrated a love for all of his family and friends, and a smile that would light up any room he entered into. He loved music, especially rock music of the 80’s, and of course, dancing to all of music he loved.

His interests in life were many, including being an avid Patriots and NASCAR fan; fishing; vegetable gardening; and pencil sketching. Ricki also enjoyed playing arcade games on his computer. His love of food included many favorites, especially seafood.

He will be greatly missed by many, especially his three children, son, Ricki P. Fish Jr. of North Swanzey, NH, his daughters, Malissa Newton and her husband, Daniel, of Walpole, NH, Sherri M. Fish, of Bellows Falls, VT; his grandchildren, Hadley Fish, Isla Fish, Aria Newton, Steven Miller, Skyla Miller; his brothers, Russell P. Fish and Ronald P. Fish, Jr., both of West Swanzey, NH; a sister, Lisa J. Lamoureux and her husband, James, of Gilsum, NH; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family members and friends. Ricki was predeceased by his parents; a brother, Randall P. Fish, Sr. on March 5, 2018; and a daughter-in-law, Abigail Fish, on February 2, 2018.

A graveside service will be held on Saturday, September 12, 2020 at 10:30am in the Oak Hill Cemetery, Pine Street, West Swanzey, NH. A celebration of Ricki’s life and gathering will immediately follow the service at the East Swanzey Community House, 18 Old Richmond Road, East Swanzey, NH, until 4:00pm.
