Mr. Ricky Sexton, 69, passed away on Thursday, February 21, 2019 surrounded by his family at Piedmont Medical Center. Although he fought and survived many illnesses over the past few years, he is now completely healed.

Ricky was born on August 10, 1949 to Phillip William and Madeline Faulkenberry Sexton, who preceded him in death. He held various jobs throughout his life including Springs Industries, PPM Construction, Daniel Construction, and numerous restaurants. For years, he worked at Watkins Grill in downtown Rock Hill, where he served countless customers and established many friendships. Ricky never met a stranger and was “one-of-a-kind.” He loved his pets and always wanted them around him. He will be missed tremendously by his family and friends.

In 2017, Ricky started attending the Charlotte Avenue Church of Christ. He accepted Christ as his Savior and joined the church that he grew to love. His family would like to thank his church family for impacting Ricky’s life over the past two years and leading him to a stronger faith.

A Memorial Service celebrating Ricky’s life will be held Sunday, February 24, 2019 at 4:30 p.m. at Charlotte Avenue Church of Christ, officiated by Minister Andy Brewster, Elder and Minister David Pharr, his brother in Christ, R. Howard Ashley, and his great nephew, Ridge Thomas. The family will receive thirty minutes prior to the service at the church.

Ricky is survived by his sisters, Glynis S. Beard (Chuck), Judy S. Faile, and Sandy S. Rinehart (Donnie) and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. In addition to his parents, Ricky was preceded in death by his only brother, Danny Sexton.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Charlotte Avenue Church of Christ, 339 Charlotte Ave., Rock Hill, SC 29730.

I’m very sorry for your loss. May the love of family, friends and Almighty God bring you strength and comfort during your time of grief. (Isaiah 41:10) And may the resurrection promise found at John 5:28, 29 bring hope and peace.

Ricky rented my sunroom in a house on White Street for several years. Glad to know that he had so many years to go with a great big smile on his face! His abundant energy will be missed.
