Ricky’s first love was his family. Pictures of his siblings, nieces and nephews adorned his room. He enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephews hunting, fishing and just talking and would spend hours playing in the pool with his younger nephews and nieces. Ricky was also an avid outdoorsmen who loved boating, fishing, and hunting. He spent much of his time with his beloved brother Buddy and special nephew Thomas hunting at Harrison Creek Hunting Club. Throughout his much too short life, Ricky was a gentle soul who touched so many lives with his smile and laughter.

He is also survived by his Grandmother Betty Sachariat of Apple Creek, OH as well as beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Ricky was predeceased by his grandparents Alex and Grace Jones and Frank Sachariat, and special uncle Paul Jones.

    I first saw his shy smile when he was about three. That same sweet smile lasted. Jenni and I are so sad about losing him. May he enjoy his reunion with GrandaddyJones and all others who left too soon. We'll miss his presence on earth, but he has reached the "happy hunting ground" and he is at peace. Our love and prayers for all of those who knew and loved Rickey, Billie and Jennifer Jones
