I was so sad to hear about Ricky’s passing. I didn’t realize he was sick and it came as quite a shock. I always liked Ricky and although we weren’t close, I have fond memories of him from when the kids were little. I also remember his solomon gundy dip on crackers…very tastey. I’ve never known anyone to make it since. He had a great smile and laugh.
Deepest condolences to Chris and Makayla and the entire family.

My sincere condolences.
So sad, such a good guy. Friends since childhood, shared many good times during school years. Nice memories. Sending love and sympathy to his loved ones. Rest easy Ricky.
Makayla & Christopher; I’ve always enjoyed running into your dad on the street, we always continued to share a laugh. Growing up he always had a way of bringing a smile to my face and I enjoyed his stories of his younger years he liked to share. As I understand his illness was quick, I’m sorry for your loss but grateful for his lack of suffering. His time was surely cut too short, and I’m genuinely sorry for that-life has a way of humbling us and his passing surely did for me.
With the greatest of sympathy-
Greg and Lin Conrad
