in the warehouse up until his retirement of 24 years with the company, in the year 2021.


Some of Ricky’s favorite pass times was listening to music and watching sports, and he could

talk your ear off about the Dallas Cowboys and the Texas Rangers. He was also a fan of NASCAR,

and had grew up around dirt track racing at Thunderbird Speedway. Ricky was a one of a kind

with an exceptionally brilliant memory, and a big heart. He will deeply be missed by his Family,
