Ricky was a hard-working, loving and dedicated father. Ricky had a great sense of humor, and was a jokester. He loved riding his Harley, as he was always young-at-heart.
Ricky was preceded in death by his parents.
Those left to cherish his memory are his wife, Mary Evans; his daughters Tammy Hernandez, Tera Evans, Amy Ayars-Evans, Amber Evans, and Angel Evans; one son C.J. Evans; 11 grandchildren; 8 great-grandchildren; 6 siblings, and many nieces and nephews.
What do you say about a brother-in-law that every time you ask him how he felt he would say with my fingers? Craig, Lacey, and I will forever miss you. You were a second father to the Beav, Craig’s best friend, and my biggest annoyer. You also were there anytime my family needed you and I will always appreciate it. Vacations will never be the same without you and there will never be a day that we don’t think about you. At least I have you and Mary’s beautiful children and grandchildren to see you in them every time. You fought a good fight Rick and we all loved you!
I had never met anyone quite like The Rickster when he married my sister. His sense of humor was unique and I always enjoyed whatever weird thing he’d say. He was a loving father, grandfather, husband, and family member. Rick worked hard to provide for his family while here on Earth; he deserves his rest now.
