He was a great friend n school. I would see him and he would holler Garner ballsI I would Holler Colichia nuts. The last time I saw him was at the ball park we hollored back and forth. He was at the ballpark watching his grandson. Smilling ear to ear,

To the Colichia Family and Friends. I am sorry for your loss. Rickey and I worked on our cars, cruised the drag and hung out at each others houses when we were teenagers. We also worked at Gene Burns Texaco station together next to the old Market Basket. I laughed till I cried lots of times around him with that great sense of humor. We also got in trouble for doing burnouts in customers cars after we washed them! He was a great guy and will surely be missed. RIP Rickey.
