Ricky was a generous, kind-hearted soul who loved and adored his family wholeheartedly.  He was a proud and loving grandfather and great grandfather. He was so good with children and his nieces and nephews all have fond memories of “Tio Ricky.” He was blessed to be one of ten siblings and he loved his brothers and sisters dearly. He put others needs before his own and always helped everyone.  Ricky was an avid hunter most of his life and nothing made him happier than to be in the New Mexico mountains hunting with his sons and/or brothers. Ricky loved the Lord and found comfort in reading the bible daily. Ricky was very dear to our hearts and we are going to miss him but we find comfort knowing that he is no longer in pain and is resting in peace in Heaven. “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.” Isaiah 12:2
