For most of Ricky’s career, he was in construction management, working for Ryan Homes for a number of years as a Service Manager. He thoroughly enjoyed the maintenance of a beautiful property in Lake Norman where he worked part time until he became ill in 2015.
Ricky loved the Lord, his family, friends, golfing, fishing and caring for wild birds. He was a great athlete, could repair anything, was a tremendous confidant, who listened more than he spoke.
In 2005, Ricky learned to play the harmonica, with perfect pitch and was quite good.
This world will never be as sweet as when Ricky was here.
