So sorry to hear of Ricky’s passing. We were neighbors growing up and bird hunted and fished and was great friends. I retired to the mountains. So I cannot be there. Having surgery day of visitation, but a lot of memories have been with me the last couple of days. Gay and family hopefully time will heal just remember the memories. Gay my mother thought the world of you. I will be with y’all in heart.

Was soooo heartbroken to hear that this sweet, kind , genuine , gentle giant of a man had passed away. He will be so missed by so many. Life will not be the same for his girls, but he raised them the right way to be independent and strong and they will carry on his legacy. Will miss your sweet smile Ricky. Rest In Peace my old friend.
