Obituary for Ricky Newkirk
Mr. Ricky Joe Newkirk was born on June 29, 1961 in Metter, Georgia to the late Charlie Lee Newkirk and Mrs. Minnie Lee Newkirk. He attended the public schools of Candler county and was a member of the Metter High School graduating Class of 1981. Ricky accepted Christ into his life at a young age, and joined Mercer Grove Baptist Church in Metter, Georgia. Later, he became a member of New Pentecostal Baptist Church in Alexandria, Virginia.
Ricky worked a variety of different jobs during his life time. While living in Virginia, he worked as a cook in many restaurants and he also worked in landscaping.
