Richard ‘Ricky’ Hightower

At his request no services are planned for Richard Annis “Ricky” Hightower, who died Dec. 9, 2004, at Barton Memorial Hospital. He was 44.

Ricky was born Dec. 11, 1959, at Stockton, Calif. He moved to South Lake Tahoe in 1993. He had been a journeyman for 16 years in carpentry and painting and was a Mercedes Benz technician. He enjoyed riding motorcycles, writing and training dogs.

Ricky cherished his family and friends and had a substantial impact on many lives. He was clever, profound and brilliant – a uniquely gifted individual. His love for his family and the Lord are undeniable and inspiring. Remembering Ricky will be easy as he is truly unforgettable.
