His family was very important to him, but his kids and grandkids were his pride and joy. Ricky loved spending time with his family and friends, especially if a good meal was involved. If the meal wasn’t up to his standards, he was sure to let you know “what would make it better”.  Ricky never missed a chance to let his family and friends know he loved them.

Ricky’s best days started with a cup of coffee and storytelling with his buddies. He enjoyed golfing, fishing, hunting, playing the guitar, and being a “pool shark.” His greatest accomplishment was his 40-year career in law enforcement. Ricky began as a patrolman, advancing to investigator before retiring as a Police Chief.

Ricky was so loved and will dearly be missed by everyone who knew him.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Mattie Randall; adopted mother/aunt, Lucy Williams; special friend, Pam Webb and best friend and cousin, Daryl Boles.
