On January 3rd at 7:40PM, Ricky Allen Waldron passed away at home at 62 years old, from a long battle of COPD.
He was born November 6th 1960 in Aurora MN and moved to Two Harbors where he grew up and raised his family with his wife Deborah Waldron. Ricky was a husband, dad, brother, a Pa, and a friend. Ricky was always fun and the life of the room and party. There was not a conversation where Ricky didn't crack a joke or two. He was always great at being brutally honest and he was always right. He played Softball for many years in his younger years. He enjoyed anything on the water, water skiing, pulling kids behind the boat and trying to get them to flip on the tube. Most of all, Ricky loved fishing and spending time at the family Cabin at Nine Mile lake. He enjoyed playing cards and dice with family and friends.
Ricky Loved to work “bahahahaha”. He worked at Serco and Builtrite for many years as an Assembler, retiring from Builtrite in 2015-ish.
The world lost a really special person, and he will hold a spot in many hearts and memories.
