Ricky hung out sometimes with David Emert and me in high school. Ricky lived close to the school so we would all skip class occasionally and hang out at his house. I use to run into Ricky from time to time but eventually lost touch with him over the years. So sad to hear of his passing . I am over joyed to know that he was a Christian. I wasn't a very good christian when I ran around with him and did not share my faith with him. He was an awesome person always thinking of others needs. I remember him giving one of our friends a job at his repair shop and trying to help him. And something I did no know, he served our country. That is so awesome. Ricky will be sorely missed. My Prayers go out to the family.

Sorry to hear of Rick's passing. I fished with him in the Smoky Mountain Bass Anglers. He was always in a good mood on the water and passionate to talk about his family.
