Richard William Henry age 69, lifetime resident of Coffeyville passed away unexpectedly on January 18, 2019 at Coffeyville Regional Medical Center. He was surrounded by his family.

Rickey was funny, always telling jokes, and teasing his family and friends. At the age of 49 Rickey lost his sight, you would never guess that his vision was impaired as he never let it define him.

May Rick's memory be a blessing. Rick was always a great guy. Never a harsh word for anyone. I was lucky enough to have time to catch up with him last summer at our class reunion. We had talked on Facebook, but my face to face conversion was great. He will be missed.

Monica, sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. I always enjoyed transporting each of them, usually to the library and doctor appointments. Now they can finally be together. I have retired and living in Bartlesville, closer to my daughter. I always asked your dad about you and he really cherished you. Love and blessings

Each of you have been involved in my life through Rickey and Sue. You are my family, too. I have known Rickey since I was sixteen, he will be sorely missed. Since moving to Valley Center, I have talked to Rickey frequently about you guys and your good times and bad. I visited with him many times.
I am so sorry for your loss and will miss my friend deeply.

My sympathy goes to the family of Rick ! I knew him, though not very well, but I taught with Sherry at RMS. I remember him even from younger years when seeing him at Henry Auto Parts . I pray that God will ease this time of sorrow. God only knows the time we spend on earth, and faith through Him can help through times of losing someone close. I pray God gives the family strength on this period of time.
