Cory A. Rickers, 35, of Paradise, left us too soon, December 9, 2012. He was born May, 31, 1977 in Santa Cruz, the son of John and Sandra Rickers. He attended school and established his life in paradise in 1980.
The Guest Book is expired.
Cory was an avid outdoorsman. He had a love for fishing, camping and boating. These are some of the memories that will be most remembered by family and friends.
Cory always provided us with a smile with his witty sense of humor and kind loving heart. There was nothing he would not do for his family and friends. He was a great son, brother and most importantly an amazing father. The love and devotion to his daughter Miley, 7 years old, will never be forgotten. She was "his angel".
Cory is survived by his mother Sandra Rickers and sister Amber Davis of Paradise. Also, his daughter Miley Rickers and her mother Maegan McCarthy of Paradise. Other survivors include niece Karlie Davis and nephew Kaylem Davis along with many aunts, uncles and cousins. He is predeceased by his father John Rickers and dog "Sweets". He will rest peacefully with his long time best friend Ben Lerossignol in heaven. He has held on to the loss of Ben for many years. Unfortunately he would not have chosen this path, but they are reunited. Bill Lerossignol was very involved in his life since his father passed away and they lost his best friend and Bill and Marie's son Ben. Bill was considered to be the dad he did not have for many years.
Celebration of life will be held Saturday, December 22, 2012 at 2pm at the Paradise Ridge Senior Center at 877 Nunneley Rd. Paradise. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider donations to the trust of his daughter Miley.
