He was a dear friend and neighbor of my wife and I. He knew my father from the 70's. He told me when my father visited me to let him know he would come over. My father came a few weeks later and I went and got him. Enrique (papo) came over and my dad was shocked to see him. My dad said "my god, what are you doing here." We would always talk in front of our house. The other day we were talking out front. He told me if I don't get back in my wife will come out looking for him. A couple minutes later his wife came out looking for him. She said I knew he had to be talking to Ron (me) or Gloria my wife. LOL He will be missed.

Ricky was such a true friend to my father, George Garrett. I will always remember his smile and hug every time I saw him. He will be missed. It was a pleasure to know him.
