Martin J. Rickard was born in Chambers, Neb., Oct. 30, 1957, and graduated to Heaven from Las Vegas, Nev., at 55 years of age on Feb 11, 2013. Marty was preceded in death by his parents, Bernard and Doris Rickard and his beloved daughter, Kyra Rae Rickard. He is survived by his high school sweetheart Shelda (Shelly) Rickard whom he married Aug 2, 1980. Marty loved his family dearly and was devoted to his children as his pride and joy. He was so proud of his son Trevor and looked forward to being reunited with Kyra one day.

Marty is survived by his beloved Shelly, their son Rev. Trevor (Lauren) and four month old grandson, Samuel Rickard; his siblings, Verlin, Richard, Warren, Gary and Martyís twin Marvin, Janet Fleek, Viki Tomjack, Gloria Mudloff, Darla Cox and many nieces and nephews. Marty loved them all.

The Rickardís relocated from Nebraska to Lake Havasu City 16 years ago. Marty was a qualified electrician but could do almost any mechanical work. He was a loyal employee who worked for Fayette Heating and Air for the past 10 years. He loved both his work and those with whom he worked and was always willing to lend a hand to any in need. Those close to Marty loved his sense of humor and fun loving ways. He will be greatly missed.

Marty was a man of strong faith even when sorely tested in difficult times. His relationship with Jesus stood strong and his hopes were to meet all his loved ones in Heaven one day.

A Memorial Service of Celebration will take place at 2 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 16, at Abundant Grace Church, 3516 N. McCulloch Blvd. Family has suggested Memorial gifts be made to Video Department, Abundant Grace Church.
