    So sorry to hear about the passing of Ricky. I have nothing but fond memories of him. Every time he would reach out to me at GPA’s clinic, he would say “it’s Ricky the pest Weissman,” but he was never a pest, just a good person. I’m honored to have known and spent a little time with Ricky.

  2. Ann Daniel says:

    I am heartbroken to learn of Ricky’s passing. We worked together for many, many years at GPA and he was well loved and respected in the GPA family. One of the things I will always remember about him was his dry humor and wit. He definitely had a way with pen and paper. He was a good person and a better friend and I will truly miss him.

    Marvin, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this most difficult time.

    So sorry to learn about Ricky’s passing. I worked with him over many years at the Georgia Ports Authority. Ricky taught me a lot about GPA’s billing process and revenue. I will always be thankful for his help and training he gave me at GPA. He was a good person and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

  4. Gloria Bray says:

    This news broke my heart. Ricky and I worked together for many years. He had to deal with an old system that I maintained. With a lot of frustration and laughs we somehow kept it running until it was replaced just as he was retiring. He always had a funny word or photo from the past that he would bring up to make us laugh. I have missed him since he has retired and I can just see him sitting around in heaven entertaining the angels. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

  5. Gayle Trussell says:

    I am so sorry to hear of Ricky’s passing. Our paths crossed many times for many years. Ricky was always very helpful and so smart and full of all kinds of knowledge. Ricky, you will be missed Brother. Rest In Peace.

  6. Sandy White says:

    I’m sitting here not knowing what to say. Ricky was one of my best friends at work and beyond. He could brighten up a stressful work day with one of his very funny remarks in an instant.
    I was still getting a funny poem from him every Christmas about the “good old days.” His going so soon leaves a huge gaping hole in our hearts for many of us who knew and loved him. I will never forget “The Rixster “.
