    Teresa, Jason and Missy….I love you all. Ricky has always made me laugh. I know right now, he’s making all the angels in heaven laugh and he’s saving a place for us to come join him one day. He’s still with you everyday, watching over you and I’m sure, in Ricky style, making us laugh in the future. He is a great man, and I cant wait to sit down and laugh with him once again. May God give you peace and comfort and my family will always be here for any of you.

    My father Ricky was a hard working tuff individual. He also had a soft and gentle side as well. He would give you the shirt off his back. He was unbelievably strong and enjoyed working as a crane operator. He took his work and our racing seriously. At the track he gave me his all and before every race he’d make sure I was buckled tight and say have fun don’t wreck. I loved him so much, he was my rock, my best friend and someone I will always look to. I will miss you dad, I love you.

    Ricky was a wonderful person who would help anyone in need. He loved his family and was a good neighbor. He watched over my property and was always willing to lend a hand to help me if I needed it. I will miss my friend and Pray for peace and comfort for his family as they move through life without their rock. Teresa and Jason you are in our thoughts and prayers.
