Burial: Brethren Cemetery, Brethren, Manistee, Michigan
Ricky was killed in a car accident. He was driving and came up the crest of a hill and saw a tractor in the same lane. He tried to avoid it by passing and lost control of his car, rolling several times. The saddest part of this accident is that his father, Richard, owned the towing company and was called to the accident. No one knew it was his son in the accident.
Fredericks is the correct spelling on the headstone. His father, Richard, had this spelling on his birth certificate and continued to use the spelling. I believe he is the only one who uses this spelling. The original was Fredrich, then Fredrick, then Fredricks.
