Ricky grew up in Bridesburg and spent most of his time playing football, baseball, and basketball at Bridesburg Recreation Center. He would also go on to play for the men’s softball leagues in the neighborhood. He graduated class of 1984 at North Catholic. Ricky could always be found in front of the TV watching the Eagles and the Phillies, with the volume on mute and sports radio on in the background. He loved taking his children to Phillies games at the Vet, buying the cheapest tickets and sneaking down to the 100 level. Ricky worked in the parts department and eventually became a car salesman at Northeast Lincoln Mercury. He was a counselor at Self Help Movement where he helped a countless number of men to get them back on their feet and the assistance they needed. Ricky was proud to be from Bridesburg, proud to be Polish and Irish and sport his favorite number, 11. He will be missed by many but remembered by all. “And until we meet again…”
