Rickey was a true servant of God, serving Christ and making disciples was his first love. He enjoyed spending time with his family and spoiling his grandson. Anyone that knew Rickey knew his love for fishing and the Pittsburgh Steelers was a big part of his enjoyment. He was a true “tell it like it is” friend and would go out of his way to help anyone. A true heart of servant!
