Ricky loved his children and his grandchildren very much. He was a mechanic that could fix almost any vehicle.

His hobbies include watching the news, spending time with the family, fishing, and relaxing with a cold drink. He loved watching wheel of fortune every night with his mother. Ricky will be greatly missed by all that loved him.
