Richard C. McCole, beloved, son, brother, grandson and uncle passed away on August 19, 2020. Ricky is survived by his parents, Richard and Mary McCole, his sisters Michelle Long and Haley Byron, his grandmother Nancy Love, his brother-in-law Matt Byron, his niece Addisyn Long and his nephews John and James Byron. He is predeceased by his grandparents Manuel and Constance Cachopa, and his brother-in-law, Michael Long. Ricky is also survived by many uncles, aunts and cousins.
Ricky grew up in Easton, MA where he was a dedicated and talented athlete at Oliver Ames High School. His many friends remember him as loyal and big-hearted. After high school, Ricky was awarded a scholarship and attended Merrimack College.
Ricky was an avid sports fan, spending many evenings yelling at the TV with his father. Also a voracious reader, Ricky was always up for discussing history, culture and the human condition. Perhaps what we loved most about him was his quick wit, sense of humor and especially his pure heart.
The family is grateful for all offers of condolences and asks that all donations be made in Ricky’s name to Family Restored in lieu of flowers.
In light of the COVID pandemic all services will be private. At the appropriate time the family will hold a memorial service where all will be welcome.
