Ricky never wasted a chance to tell someone about Jesus, frequently seen in his God is Good All the Time cap, a Christian shirt and he loved the Lord with all he had. If you ever wanted to find him he would be either fishing, hanging out in “the shop”, cheering on the Dallas Cowboys or cooking the most amazing brisket you’ve ever had. He loved his family fiercely and would do anything to make sure they knew it. He was loved by many and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
“When you’re at rock bottom, God is up to something. Just trust in Him” -Ricky Battistoni
