Rickey was born on December 3rd, 1955 to William and Jeanene Smith. He was raised in Dumas, Texas along with his two siblings. Although he was Texan by birth, his heart was in the mountains. He was an outdoorsman, spending most of his free time hunting, fishing and camping. He loved to work with his hands, and like his father, he was a skilled carpenter. Rickey had a passion for adventure and a knack for fixing. When he was not keeping up his green thumb, he found fulfillment in exploring. Rickey was able to spot a true diamond in the rough. He will be missed by his family and many friends.
Rickey was preceded in death by his father, William Earl Smith.
He is survived by his mother, Ora Jeanene Smith of Dumas, Texas, his brother, Danny Smith and wife Cindy of Oklahoma, his sister Sonia Sawyer and husband Noel of Woodland Park, Colorado, his 2 sons, Chad Smith and wife Angela of Canyon, Texas, and Caleb Smith and wife Tomi of Amarillo, Texas, his daughter, Rebekah Haskins and husband James of Amarillo, Texas, his 5 grandchildren, Chloe Posada and husband Michael, Tristian Smith, John Earl Smith, Emily Kay Smith, and Waylon Haskins along with several cousins, nieces, and a nephew.
