His many cooking jobs included: the Elks Lodge in Superior, the OK Café and Olive Saloon in Hastings, NE. He also helped in the kitchen while he was a resident of Haven Home Nursing in Kenesaw, NE. Every day was Christmas for Ricky, as he always had a small Christmas tree in his room or apartment that was decorated to fit the season. He decorated his tree with cards from his friend Virginia Wolf at the Olive Saloon, amongst other ornaments and decorations. Anything he made during craft time at Haven Home was done in red and green, as those were his two favorite colors.

Ricky had an extended family that included Virginia Wolf and his daily coffees group at the Olive Saloon and him many friends from Haven Home. He often rode with friend Kathy Trausch from Hastings to Kenesaw to visit his good friend, Pearla. Ricky enjoyed the many activities at Haven Home and always made newcomers feel welcome. Ricky was never long a stranger to anyone who walked in the door.
