Ricky was an avid sports fan; he enjoyed WWE from a young age, then he developed a love for basketball, baseball, football, soccer, golf and all sports.  His favorite teams were the Chicago Bulls, White Sox, Cubs and Bears, anything Chicago!  Ricky loved his vacations, cruises and spending time with his family, especially his cousins and nieces.

Ricky was such a wonderful person, his life was a constant battle; having over 30 surgeries since birth.  Throughout his battles he always kept a smile or a jokes, he never complained about anything.  When doctors said he would never make it past 5 years old, Ricky’s goal was to make it to age 40 – which as of September he did – he made 40!!!  God granted his wish.  Ricky had many people who looked up to him.  He was sharp as a razor, he was everyone’s idol, a strong straight-up man.  He will truly be missed by so many of his family and friends.  Fly high Ricky, we will always treasure our time with you.

Please omit flowers, memorial donations in Ricky’s name may be made to the family.
