Ricky Maurice Anderson, Jr. (Fat Daddy) was born on May 31, 1992 in Phoenix, AZ to the parents of Josie Gay and Ricky Maurice Anderson Sr. Ricky was the youngest of four children. Ricky's education began at Andulicia, Cartwright and Boreman Elementary, where he was then promoted to Maryvale High School, where he attended for four years. Ricky started out confused about high school, he really did not like football, he was considered the class clown wether he was telling jokes, dancing all over the place (jerking) just to make people laugh or to see a smile on your face. Ricky started to turn his life around his Jr. year, he got more involved in sports( track & field, and football) he began to love the game & called himself the beast. By the time Ricky was a senior Ricky was Captain of the football team. Ricky became the focus of recruters for football scholarships to universities.

Ricky was called home on September 26, 2010. Also preceded in death by his grandmother Dora Gay, grandmother Mildred Walton, uncle James Gay, aunt Rosemary Gay.

Ricky leaves to cherish his memories to his mother, Josie Gay (Terrence Rhodes) , father, Ricky Maurice Anderson Sr. (Michelle), brother, Fred Gay and two sisters, Felicia Gay and Nicole Anderson, grandfather, Arree Walters, combinations of uncles, Rosun Walton, Cheif Walton, Roy Anderson, Michael Anderson & Drexal Anderson and aunts, Maxine Rogers, Sherry Anderson, Suzie Money, Stephine Walton, Kawana Anderson, Nancy Gay, Lisa Gay, Shirley Noyd & Denise Noyd, one niece Zeriona, one nephew Ezekiel and a host of cousins and friends.

Ricky touched the lives of many that will forever remember him. Ricky's favorite quote "You know I'm Cute", "Yo momma do you got tickets to the show, Momma say; what show?" then he would flex and say the gun show! We love you Fat daddy!
