    We are so sorry to hear of Rickey’s sudden passing. He was a great guy. Very funny and caring man. He was a great friend to Drs. Joe and Marianne Giangreco and to many others including the residents of the housing development. I always enjoyed visiting him at Warrens. Will miss seeing his truck on the square and his face in No Frills. Out thought and prayers are with you all. Doug and Lisa Mayo

    I was just in Warren’s recently to pick up a ring that I had sized. Ricky was always so helpful, caring, funning. I will miss him terribly. So sorry for the family. Warren’s won’t be the same without him.

    I was saddened to see the news of Rickey’s passing. He was just such a bright spot in the day if you had an encounter with him around town. Rickey was so kind and helpful to others around him- always willing to go above and beyond for others in need. You could call on him and he would help with a smile. He was a great neighbor to our loved one Jane at Woodglen and helped me tremendously after her passing. Rickey, you were something special and will be missed.
