After graduating from Charlotte High School in 1977, Ricardo continued his education achieving his Bachelors Degree in Architectural Engineering at the Texas A&M University in College Station. In pursuit of his career he moved to San Antonio where he resided the rest of his life.
Ricardo was an adventurous person who loved to travel seeing numerous places of interest and history in our nation and around the world. He mostly enjoyed traveling by cruise ship making many memories with his late husband, Louis C. Dominguez, who sadly lost his battle to cancer soon after they married in March of 2017.
You can say that Ricardo was a movie fanatic being the first to watch every new release at the movie theaters. If you wanted to know about any movie, he would be the one to call and he would gladly tell you his rating, but yet not spoil the movie. Ricardo also loved hosting and decorating parties for any holiday, occasion or just a night out and barbecuing to spend time with family and friends. Ricardo had a passion for music and he would go to numerous concerts and you could catch him singing and tapping along on anything as if it were a piano or the drums all while enjoying his cocktails. His favorite bands of all times were The Moody Blues and The Alan Parsons Project. Ricardo was always having a good time cracking jokes about anything or anyone all while giggling, which we will never forget, that giggle. He was full of life and laughter which will leave such a big void in our hearts and lives. Ricardo will be missed dearly by all of his family and friends leaving us with many cherished memories.
The family will have a private memorial service and the burial of his ashes on September 19 at 10 a.m. at the Community Cemetery of Charlotte.
