JACKSON - Kevin Allan Ricker, 50, died after a long illness September 5, 2015, at a Bangor hospital. He was born September 6, 1964, in Waterville, the son of Darryl and Myrtie (Welch) Ricker.
Kev graduated from Mount View High School, class of 1983. He worked in the woods most of his life because it was "in his blood." He also enjoyed mechanics and auto body work. Occasionally he worked for his dad, hauling gravel and whatever else needed to be done. He has been with his beloved Annette for the last 6 years and they always did everything together. He loved music, especially The Grateful Dead. Kev enjoyed his dogs and spending time in his vegetable garden. He had a big heart - always helping anyone who needed it.
Kevin was predeceased by his mother and his grandparents. He is survived by his loving wife Annette (Olmstead) Ricker; her children Jessica Ludden and Jennifer Parker; Crystal Curtis, whom Kevin raised as his own; sister Karla Flagg; father Darryl Ricker; niece Haley; special cousin David Ricker; Monty, who was his friend since they were both in diapers; and many, many dear friends.
Graveside services will be announced at a later date. Condolences to the family may be expressed at www.BrookingsSmith.com.
