Rickey is believed to have passed away in a vehicle accident near Albany Ga
Comment from James Benito: I was stationed with Ricky at Ft Hood when he Died. He was in 1st Cav, 1st Brigade. The NCOIC was TSgt Robin Kirksey. The died around 1985-1986 in a car accident while on leave in georgia visiting family and friends. From what I recall the car went off the road and he was thrown from the vehicle
Comment from Jerry Breckheimer: The details shared are nearly spot on… though I’m fairly certain Ricky’s death was in 87′ (I was at FT Hood with Ricky… knowing I was still in H.S. in 85′ & 86′ has be believing he passed in 87′).
