Ricky Don Walker

October 8, 1966 to January 5, 2015

Boulder Creek resident Ricky Don Walker passed away unexpectedly on Jan. 5, 2015 at Stanford Hospital. His warm bear hugs and big smile will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Rick enjoyed greeting and visiting with everyone he encountered. He was one of the “good guys.”

Rick was born in San Jose and moved to Ben Lomond in 1970. He graduated from San Lorenzo Valley High School in 1984. He worked as a tow truck driver, firefighter, and commercial electrician. He obtained many certifications in his years as an electrician.

Rick married his life partner, Kelly Libbey, on Sept. 8, 2012. They were a perfect match and enjoyed life together camping, playing golf, and remodeling their home.

Rick is survived by his loving wife Kelly, father Don Walker, mother Leota Rodas, sister Lynn Walker Tremblay, stepsister Tina Walker, daughters Amanda and Jordan, son Max, and stepson Brannon.

Please join us for a celebration of Rick's life on Saturday, Jan. 24, at the Felton firehouse, 131 Kirby Street in Felton, starting at 1 p.m.

Please bring an appetizer and a story to share as we celebrate Rick. Please contact Jamie Anderson at 831-246-2954 to coordinate the menu.

Dear Mrs. Walker and Family:

We are writing to express our sincere condolences over the loss of Mr. Walker. We know that this is a very difficult time, so we wanted to offer you an encouraging thought from the bible. Our Creator has given many promises for the future including the thought found at Revelation 21:4, "God... will wipe all tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain" [Contemporary English Version].

We encourage you to visit for additional bible-based promises such as: no more health problems (Isaiah 33:24); no more homelessness or unemployment (Isaiah 65:21,22); no more war (Psalms 46:9). We have also attached a link to the tract, "Will Suffering Ever End?"

You may feel free to get in touch with us at to help answer any questions you may have.

Most sincerely,
Christina and Bridgette Newbold
