AS TIME WANED AND RICKY’S HEALTH STARTED TO DECLINE, IT HAD A DEVASTATING EFFECT ON HIM. HE NO LONGER WAS ABLE TO DO FOR HIMSELF EFFICIENTLY AND THAT REALLY AFFECTED HIM MENTALLY. BUT YET, HE KEPT GOING WITH THAT STRONG DETERMINATION AND WILL POWER.

RICKY HAD MANY HOBBIES SUCH AS FISHING AND MECHANIC WORK. HE LOVED WORKING ON HIS VEHICLES…. WASHING AND WAXING THE WHEELS AND RIMS OR SITTING ON THE POND BANK, CASTING OUT A FEW LINES, CATCHING CATFISH FOR DINNER.
RICKY PERSONALITY WAS CONTAGIOUS!!! EVERYONE HE MET HAD A PASTE EFFECT ON THEM, BECAUSE OF HIS SMILE AND SENSE OF HUMOR. HE WOULD SAY THINGS AND PEOPLE COULDN’T HELP BUT LAUGH. THAT WAS THE TYPE OF PERSON HE WAS. HE WAS DEFINITELY LOVED AND WILL CERTAINLY BE MISSED BY ALL PEOPLE THE LORD BLESSED TO MEET HIM.
