Rodney Ricks Sr. unexpectedly passed away on July 9, 2022 at the age of 65. Rodney was born in Boise, ID to Raldo and Nadine Ricks on March 6, 1957. He grew up in Carson City, NV, graduating from Carson High School. He spent the majority of his life in Carson City but also settled for some time in Crescent City, CA and Las Vegas, NV. He was a heavy equipment operator and was a superintendent on several jobs before purchasing his own water truck and working as the owner/operator.
