The family will greet friends prior to the service Friday beginning at 3:00 p.m. Born in Hawkinsville, he was the son of the late Cordie Daniel Flanders and Ruth Evelyn Tripp Flanders. He was also preceded in death by his siblings, Cordie Flanders, Jr., Patsy Johnson and Susan Clark. Ricky loved fishing and making people laugh. He always said he could have been a stand-up comedian if they hadn’t made him sit down. He had a beautiful sense of humor and loved his family with all his heart, especially his wife. Ricky was a paraplegic but he still loved life, was happy within himself. This made him innovative and always looking for newer and better ways to do things.
