    Ricky was a lifelong friend. He brought together other friends who could enjoy his company and that of each other, his interest in music, his athletic skills, and his love of life. He has meant so much to so many. He will be missed but always remembered. Our love and prayers go out to Jan, his daughters, and the rest of the family.
