We were so saddened to hear of Ricky's passing. He had a kind soul and giving spirit that touched so many and will never be forgotten. Not only was he a truck driver, but a superb painter as well. We were so blessed to have Ricky as a nephew. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you, Sonny, Brenda, Tyler & Taylor and the entire family during this difficult time. May God bless you all. With our love,
Wayne & Jean Fender
