To Ricky's family I would like to express my sympathy as from my fellow employees at the Warren County Sheriff's Office. Ricky and I attended the Kentucky State Police Academy together in 1989 and were both assigned to Post 3 (Bowling Green) where we worked together for years. Ricky was a good Trooper and a good person. Rest well Ricky, you will be missed.

Ricky was a very good friend to me; we worked together at Horse Cave PD and had many good times together, both at work and off time to. Ricky, thank you so much for your testimony by telling me that your heart was right with the Lord. I know you're in heaven looking down and someday I will see you again.  RIP! Brother  601
