Richard England, Sr. Obituary

Richard Lord England, Sr., 56, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, entered into his eternal rest on Saturday, November25, 2023.

Many knew him as Ricky. He was a son of Walker England, Jr., and Della England. He was born on February 2, 1967 in Mayfield, Kentucky. He was a member of Lifeway Bible Fellowship Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Ricky was a hard worker, amazing father, devoted husband, and he loved family gatherings. In his younger years, Ricky sang in the gospel youth choir with his brothers, cousins, and childhood friends. He loved and played basketball at Sedalia High School. While in high school, Ricky developed a love for auto body work. In the mid-80’s, Ricky relocated to Indiana to further pursue his passion for auto body work. He worked for over a decade with Kelly Automotive until he relocated to Versailles, Kentucky.

In his spare time, he faithfully watched wrestling on Saturdays, and his favorite duo was the Four Horsemen featuring Ric Flair. Ricky loved going to the movies and bowling with his family.

Later in life, Ricky and his family relocated back to Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he began working part-time at O’Reilly’s Auto Parts and working on cars as a hobby. His passion continued with his enormous collection of Hot Wheels cars that he wanted to dedicate to his grandchildren. Ricky ‘s big heart and love for his family will live on through every car we meet.
