Obituary for Ricky Louis Sims

Ricky Louis Sims, also known as Mr. Bankhead, Slick Ric, and Rick Fly to those who loved him, received his wings at the age of 58.

Born July 24, 1960 to Lillie Mae Sims and the late Larry Sims Sr., Ricky graduated from West Fulton High School in 1978.

He received Christ at an early age. He was a pillar of the community, a part of everybody's family. Ricky was born very sickly, but he didn't let his illness hold him down or defeat him.

On the night of November 9, 2018 at 11:37 pm, Ricky was called home.

Ricky was preceded in death by one sister, Rosie Sims. He leaves behind many memories to be treasured by his family and friends, who he loved unconditionally.

He leaves behind his loving mother, Lillie Mae Sims; one daughter, Sanpecia Price; and one granddaughter, Vivian Price; two sisters, Tassie Sims, and Jeanette Walker; one brother, Larry Sims Jr.; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
