So sad to hear this news. Ricky and I knew each other as young teenagers. We went to jr high together. I always remember him being a happy guy. Prayers for his family.

I cried when I saw this in the paper yesterday. Our father's played in a band together and we played while they played. The world is a little sadder place without him in it. My condolences to the family.

Ricky & I were acquainted at a very early age. Went through 12yrs of schooling together. Fast forward 40yrs, and reacquainted on fb, and saw & spoke to each other a few times at the airport. I considered him a friend. Godspeed Ricky. Will see you again one day.
