He had a passion for sports which inspired him to coach for many years in Pony League and later the American Legion Ball. As time went by he coached T-ball through Babe Ruth League, but if he didn't coach he attended games or watched on TV. For many years he carried the chains for Cabot football games. Ricky also enjoyed playing softball for many years with Cabot United Methodist Church. Ricky retired from the banking industry after forty years of service to Union National Bank, Worthen, Boatmans, Nations, and finally Bank of America. Through those years he made lasting friendships. Ricky had not been retired long, when the opportunity arose for him to work security at Cabot High School, only to be sidelined due to health reasons. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Carti Foundation, American Cancer Society, Arkansas Hospice, or Cabot United Methodist Church. Family will receive friends from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 6, 2010 at Westbrook Funeral Home, Beebe. Services will be 10 a.m. on Wednesday, July 7, 2010 at Cabot United Methodist Church.
