“He fought a good fight, but lost his battle”
Rickey served three years in the US Army during the Vietnam War, enlisting at the age of 17. He worked as a certified welder for 50 years, and he really loved his trade. Rickey enjoyed fishing, hunting, working, and making unique art, and Rickey always had a smile on his face. He was affectionately known as “Honey” to all his sweetie pies. He never met a stranger, and he will be truly missed by all that knew and loved him.
The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at the VA Hospital for their care, love, and support.
