Mr. Ricky Waldo Lynn, age 62, of the Kibbee Community, passed away early Sunday morning, March 15, 2020 at Meadows Health in Vidalia. He fought a short, but courageous battle with cancer. Ricky was born to Waldo and Myra Lynn of Collins, lived his childhood in Savannah, and later moved to the Vidalia area. He was preceded in death by his mother, father, and youngest brother Daniel Lynn.
“Big Ricky” was a master carpenter and craftsman, the definition of “Jack-of-all-trades”. He loved to talk and tell stories, and never met a stranger. He enjoyed fishing and being outdoors. He cherished most of all, his beautiful wife and family, and the time he spent with them. He was a member of Cornerstone Baptist Church.
Ricky is survived by his loving wife, Renee Lynn; one son, Ricky Lynn and wife Julie; two grandchildren, Maecon and Nathan Lynn all of Mt. Vernon; one brother, Randy Lynn of Lyons; two sisters, Cindy Bazemore and husband Clegg of Metter, and Jill O’Neal and husband Chester of Higgston; one brother-in-law, Oren “Duke” Dukes and wife Lisa of Vidalia; and several nieces and nephews.
The family will receive friends at the church on Saturday morning from 10:00 until just prior to the service.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, March 21st, at 11:00 a.m. in the Cornerstone Baptist Church with Reverend Gaynor Ridgdill officiating.
Burial will follow in the church cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Cornerstone Baptist Church, 3429 Hwy 29, Vidalia, GA 30474.
