     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

  2. To Ricky’s Family,
    You have my heartfelt condolences. I went to True Cross with Ricky. When we were in seventh grade we would play football against the eighth graders. There was a kid in eight grade that was bigger and faster than us. None of us little seventh graders could tackle him. Your dad would tell me if we just tackled him by the legs we could get him down. It wasn’t easy but we did. Your dad showed me then that you could succeed against things that were more powerful and scary. We just needed to believe in ourselves. Powerful lesson at an early age. RIP Ricky
