Rickey and I were cousins and I have known him since the late 50's. Always a smile and wiling to talk your ear off. I stopped to see him a few days ago and it gave me great comfort that he was peaceful and surrounded by loved ones. He had a thankless job with the Oxford Boro for decades, but never let it bother him.
His devotion to the Union Fire Co was second to none. As a Fire Policeman, Ambulance Crew, or Fireman he answered the call literally thousands and thousands of times. Sometimes Rickey had trouble speaking but I know his civic actions did the talking for him. Rest in peace.
