Rickie was born on January 3, 1954, to the late Bill and Zana Lamb Price at Fort Carson, Colorado while his father was stationed there. He grew up in a military home which allowed Rickie to travel the world. He graduated high school while the family was in Taiwan. After high school, he joined the United States Air Force and served during the Vietnam Conflict. After his time in the service, he moved back to Texas and met his wife Stephanie Ann Baker in Wichita Falls. They married in Gatesville on May 7, 1983. They lived in Gatesville for many years where he was a volunteer firefighter and paramedic for TDCJ. In 1999, they moved to Lampasas County where he was a Logistic Specialist on Fort Hood until his recent retirement. Rickie never missed an opportunity to play golf on his business trips and any other chance he had. He also loved to go camping and fishing with his family and his friends. Rickie loved the Texas and the American flag and would proudly display it anywhere he laid his head.

Rickie was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Billy Kim Price and Mickey Price.

Rickie is survived by his wife Stephanie Ann Price; children, Christina Snodgrass, Charles Creson, Melody Edwards; sister, Kelly Knott; brother, Joey Price; five grandchildren, Alyssa, Rickie, Kaitlin, Wyatt, and Paxton; nieces, Stephanie, Michelle, Zana; and his nephew, B.J.; and his countless friends who he considered family.
