Died: Jan. 1, 2014

Shawn David Ricker, age 42, passed away peacefully Wednesday at his home. He was welcomed into Heaven and is now joyously in the presence of the Lord.

He attended First Church of God in Greeneville.

He was a loving father to his two children, Colin and Kara Ricker, and a loving son to his mother, Martha Ottinger, and father, Ronnie Ricker, and stepmother, Angie Ricker, and stepfather, Steve Ottinger.

He had a special bond with his sister, Melissa Babb. He was also a father to two children he raised as his own, Brianna Totman and Daniel Oates.

He was a 19-year employee of Parker Hannifin and a graduate of Phoenix University with a degree in criminal justice.

He especially enjoyed having Jamie Horner as a lifelong friend and loved his aunts, uncles, and cousins in Tennessee and Georgia.

He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents: Greer and Bea Samples; paternal grandparents: Ralph and Eulalia Ricker; and uncles: Buddy Samples and Bob Jaynes.

The family will receive friends from 2-4 and 5-7 p.m. Saturday at Kiser-Rose Hill Funeral Home.

The funeral service will be held at 7 p.m. in the funeral home chapel following visitation with Pastor Gerald Rudd, Pastor Dale Gruver, and Pastor Stephen Aiken officiating.

Interment will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday in Oak Grove Cemetery in Greeneville. Family and friends are asked to meet at 1:15 p.m. at the funeral home to go in procession to the cemetery.

Pallbearers will be Jamie Horner, Eddie Samples, Jerry Ricker, Colin Ricker, Lance Babb, and Tracy Babb.
