  1. Ricky,
    Although we only knew you for a short time, you seemed like you were a kind soul. With every conversation it was apparent that you loved your wife and life deeply. Our thoughts will be with your family during this time. The cookouts wont be the same without you. Rest in Peace Buddy.

  3. Rip Ricky, we will miss our Frankenmuth vacations, our every other Friday card games with you guys coming early just to play with Aurora, seeing you at every cookout and party. This world does not feel the same without you ????. Until we meet again ❤️
