Ricky lived a hard life, yet he never let it harden his heart. He was a generous and forgiving man, willing to self-sacrifice for the good of others. Ricky experienced many health challenges near the end of his life and even then, he remained optimistic. He dreamed of owning an RV and traveling the country while working with the carnival. He was a big dreamer, with an even bigger heart. Ricky is deeply loved and will be greatly missed.
