I've known Ricky since high school and was lucky enough to reconnect with him several times over the years. I'll always remember how proud he was when talking about his kids and their accomplishments. Most of all I'll miss his quiet/funny/genuine personality. Thoughts and prayers to Ricky's family as well as Christine and her family.
