Richard Ochoa

Asheville - In Loving Memory of our Little Brother, Richard Ochoa (AKA: Ricky Montez), 43, of Asheville, who died Wednesday, May 25, 2011.

Ricky was born August 25, 1967, in Jacksonville, FL. He was a graduate of Enka High School, where he was well loved and liked. His teacher, Miss Anderson, was a particular help to him.

Ricky's whole world was his daughter Kaylie, whom he loved and cherished more than anything else. She gave him strength and love, and he thought of her all the time.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Rios Martinez, who died September 2003; and by siblings Molly Montez, who died in 2001, Salvador Montez, who died in 1983, and Peter Martinez, who died in 1965.

He is survived by his daughter, Kaylie Ochoa; siblings Virginia Montez Morris, Jesse F. Montez, Johnny Montez, Lucas Martinez, Linda Martinez, George Martinez, and Carmen Jane Ochoa; 19 nieces, and 14 nephews.

A graveside service will be at 11:00 a.m. Tuesday at Green Hills Cemetery.

Some folks say they wouldn't change a thing. Even if they could, but I would. Ricky we love and cherish you; we're lost for words. Your passing is a great loss to us. At the same time we're happy for you.

We will stay strong and carry on with you on our minds and in our hearts. R.I.P.
