Richard Allen Morris

August 31, 1965 — October 2, 2021

Richard “Ricky” Allen Morris, 56, of Free Union, Virginia went to be with the Lord on October 2, 2021, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born on August 31, 1965.

Ricky was preceded in death by his father, Frank Dudley; son, Michael Dabney; grandmother, Edith; and grandfather, John.

He is survived by his mother, Jean Dudley; brothers, Roger “Junior” Houchens (Madeline), Gary Houchens (Jackie), Rob Woodward, (Beth), and Mike Dudley (Christy); children, Richard Allen II Morris(Casey), and Travis “Tracie” Morris (Adeana); grandchildren, Kyleigh and Lonan.

Ricky was an honest man who loved life, the outdoors, hunting, and going to car races with special friends, Blu, Jake, Junior, Glen, and Lora.  Ricky had a heart of gold who always made you feel loved and who would do anything for anyone. We will miss his contagious smile and his hugs, with his squeezes so tight, you thought he was going to hang on forever.

The family will receive friends from 6:00-8:00 P.M. Tuesday, October 5, 2021, at Ryan Funeral Home, 12819 Spotswood Trail Ruckersville, VA 22968.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Albert Holsapple and Laura Snow for all their loving care. The family would also like to thank Roger “Junior” (Madeline) and Jamie Morris for all their help and care.  Ricky wanted to thank his mom and dad for all their love and support.
