Rickey James Sears on December 27, 2017 went to “dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Rickey was 37 years old and died after a brief illness. He was a true southern gentleman and loved by all who knew him. Rickey attended Riverdale High School, Delgado Community College and Tulane University for two years. He also attended Crescent City Bartending School and volunteered at the Zoo for additional credit. He never stopped trying to learn.

Rickey had a passion for hospitality and loved his position in fine dining, at the same time doing part time seafood catering and electrical work. He excelled in any job he did.

When not working, Rickey was extremely happy fishing, cooking, tending to his herb and flowering plant gardens.

He also did wood working along with other crafty projects.

Along with his love to tell humorous stories, he also liked to write stories, which was always his dream.

Rickey loved New Orleans and loved spending quality time with his Dad and brother at the Saints games.

He was compassionate to everyone and a rescuer of animals and reptiles.

His family asks that you keep his memory alive by speaking of him often and continuing to share wonderful stories of him.

Rickey will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

A celebration of his life will be at a later date.
