It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert Karl Ricker Sr., beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend on July 18, 2023, in Williamsburg, VA.
Robert was born on February 5, 1940 in Maine, and was the son of the late David and Marie Perry Ricker. He was a proud veteran of the United States Army, having served two tours in Vietnam, and retired as Sergeant.
Robert was an avid outdoorsman, and enjoyed camping and fishing. He was happiest when he was working on cars, or working in his yard. His yard caught attention by the always maintained grass and pink flamingos. He also loved helping his neighbors in between his own hobbies.
Robert unfortunately joined his son, Robert K. Ricker Jr., in passing on July 18, 2023 in Williamsburg, VA.
Robert is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Judith Ricker. He is also survived by son David R. Ricker (Tanya); daughter Michelle Hutton (Michael); siblings Donald Ricker and Linda Hillock; grandchildren Anneliese, Ethan, Chloe, Jacob, Logan, and Denise; many neighbors and friends.
There are no planned services at this time as the family will be mourning in private. Please keep Mrs. Ricker in your thoughts through her recovery and mourning.
