Ricky retired from PNM after 38 years of service as a Gas Technician, after retirement he started substitute teaching for the Alamogordo Public Schools, where he had the ability to inspire many young high school students. Ricky was active in his parish of Immaculate Conception where he taught religious education and played guitar for the choir. Ricky was known to many as a wonderful musician and he encouraged everyone he could to pursue their musical talents. His family is confident that he is singing with the choir of angels he always wanted. He had a great interest in languages, besides being proficient in English and Spanish he taught himself German, Tagalog and Arabic.
