After a four year battle with cancer, Ricky passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family. He was the owner and operator of Community Lawn Service for 25 years. He was married to his best friend Angie for 36 years. Ricky will be remembered for his love of caring for all of his livestock, going to casinos, drinking coffee, being an avid Saints fan, spending time with grandkids, constantly joking, and beginning each day with prayer time. He loved to sac-a-lait fish, and often said he would fish every day if he could. He remained optimistic until his last breath. He never met a stranger, and had a kind and generous heart.
Pallbearers are Dustin Jock, Travis Broussard, Dennis Shelton, Landon Meynard, Micah Meazell, and Patrick Lavergne. Honorary pallbearers are Chris Hartdegen and Janson Delaney.
