Ricky Edward Burgess
Ricky Edward Burgess, age 62, of Branson, Missouri, passed away April 3, 2021. He entered this life September 7, 1958, the son of Cecil E. and Madeline R Burgess. His parents have preceded him in death.
With a generous heart, Ricky would give you anything you asked of him, and if he could not give, he would actively find a way to help. He regularly repeated life lessons and expressions that his mama had taught him; he truly loved and admired her. Ricky worked as an auto mechanic locally and was an avid NASCAR fan, especially when Jeff Gordon was driving. He also made time for fishing as well as traveling to the casino. Ricky's heart touched many lives over the years, and he will long be remembered.
Ricky is survived by close friend and “brother,” Wade (Frankie) Stofer of Hollister, Missouri; close friends: Carla Perry of Forsyth, Missouri; Nicole Hagen of Branson West, Missouri; Donna (Jason) Mosier of Harrison, Arkansas; and Cindy Bower of Branson, Missouri; Ricky would have wanted to thank officer Rick Bright of the Branson Police Dept along with many other “angels” that have touched his life and brought him comfort in his final days.
A celebration of life will be planned for a later time. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks. To leave an online condolence, please visit www.cremationsoftheozarks.com.
