Following graduation he enlisted in the United States Air Force where he served in several locations, such as Turkey and Germany, until his honorable discharge in 1985.
Ricky loved entertaining people. Whether it was cracking jokes, or doing his number one passion, Karaoke. His love for running started in High School where he competed in track and cross country, and later in life he competed in the Pan Mass Challenge. Ricky had a passion for reading, especially Stephen King novels. When he wasn’t busy with one of his many hobbies, he could be found watching adult comedy cartoons, or the Three Stooges, with his beloved cat Tonka.
