"Ricky" I remember him and his siblings from Whitefield. Ricky worked on my Grandmother's farm as a teenager. I was much younger and I'm sure pestered him unmercifully while he was doing chores.
My condolences to the family. RIP Ricky

My heart hurts for you all. Rick was a genuine, down to earth, extremely hilarious man. I remember some of his crazy stories and still tell them on occasion.
