Born on March 3, 1946 in the village of Ham, in northern France, to Denise
Hervieux and American serviceman, Gaetano Ricci, the family later settled

War and later migrated to the Pacific Northwest and fell in love with
the area where he worked, in various fields, until his retirement in 2010.

gardening and his unique sense of humor.
He is survived and celebrated by his wife, Gayle; his son, Joel (Ivy)
Ricci; daughter, Juliette (Ron) Lagman; sister, Joelle (Randy) Morgan;
brothers, Gerald (Johanne) and Tony Ricci; several nieces and nephews;
