In sweet peace, Our Heavenly Father, called Ricky Martin Kendall to eternal rest Tuesday, March 29, 2022. Ricky was born January 8, 1959, in Anson County, North Carolina; and he was the son of the late Willie H. Kendall and Mary Alice Tyson Kendall. Gone but will never be forgotten, Ricky will be remembered for his kindness, charisma, and outgoing personality. We are comforted in knowing that he is resting in the Arms of Our Lord and Savior and soaring with the Angels.
Ricky attended the Anson County public schools and graduated in the class of 1977 from Bowman Senior High School, Wadesboro, North Carolina. Prior to retirement, he was employed with Teledyne ALVAC, Monroe, North Carolina.
A man of faith, Ricky and his family were devoted members of Rose of Sharon Friendship Church of God, Ansonville, North Carolina. There he was a member of the Steward and Trustee Boards and Church Choir. He was also a member of Friendship Church of God Assembly Choir. In his leisure, Ricky loved cooking, fishing, and restoring machinery, especially small engines, and bicycles. He also enjoyed horseback riding and was a member of the Shadow Riders Horse Club.
Left to cherish his memory are his daughters: Latoya (Curtis) McCaskill and Martina (Johntrell)Kendall-Johnson; grandchildren: Genesis Moore, Emanuel Moore, Ethan Kendall, and JaNuri Johnson; brothers: Willie D. Kendall and Gregory O. Kendall; sister, Dorris (Nathaniel) Kendall-Rorie; aunts: Julia T. Smith, Frances R. Wade, Mattie T. Clark, Gloria Ann Tillman, Susie Tillman, Charlena Walker, and Blanche Yelverton; special child who helped rear, Drekius Tanner, and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
Ricky set an example of strength, courage, joy, and laughter. These qualities will forever be embedded in our hearts.
“Good night Ricky, may flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest”.
