Ricky was born April 18, 1964 at Crozer Hospital Upland, PA. To the Late Juanita and James W. Taylor. He was the youngest of four children.
Ricky received his formal education from Larkin School in the early years. And as he got older he was educated through the Impact Systems(later became Keystone Human Services)
Mom always joked about his job at his day program because he was always getting in trouble talking more than working.
If you knew Ricky you know he was a Big Eagles Fan. This was how him and Dad bonded and Ricky took it to the next level. SPORTS ENTHUSIAST!!!!!
Ricky's other LOVE "Music" with his head going from side to side he would YELL Motown!!!!
His all time favorite was Michael Jackson and all kinds of Soul music: Temptations, Four Tops, and he Loved singing along with James Brown one of his favorites was Big Payback.
On a more serious note Ricky Loved his family. I can remember more than once where he wanted to defend one of us.
What was so amazing about Ricky was his resilence for the the past 4-5 years Ricky hasn't been able to Walk, Eat whole food and some other things we take for granted. And even though this was hard for him he continued to make adjustments to all these changes. Also, at one time for someone who Loved to eat he could eat nothing by mouth.
Ricky also had a very close bond with Mom and when she passed away we really worriedl about Ricky but he adjusted. But we know he missed her Dearly.
Ricky is Truly going to be missed. He was Loved by us all. He made Loving him so EASy. And he LOVED us Unconditionally.
Last but not least if you knew Ricky you were aware he could get LOUD and he could TALk. But that was Ricky: As he would say "I'm a CHESTER BOY".
Ricky leaves to cherish her memory: two sisters, Theresa Smith, Helen Taylor, One Aunt, Angela V. Isenberg(Donald) his Beloved nieces and nephews,and a host of Cousins and friends.
Special Helpers: Maria ___________ Sinnia Williams, Beatrice Makundu
Over the years
And the entire Keystone Human Services especially the Kossuth_____________
Special Aunts: Lottie Dickerson, Della Tull, Grace Brown-Johnson
On the Back of Program: Love light in flight. Ricky brought pure Light and Joy into all of our lives. A Precious One put upon this Earth. He deeply touched all our lives in so many Wonderful and Delightful ways. Your Aunt Angie
