Ricky Lee Reeves, 53, of Columbia, Missouri passed away unexpectedly Saturday, August 29, 2020.
Ricky was born September 11, 1966 in St. Louis, Missouri to Jack Reeves and Margaret (Hand-Reeves) Grammer.
Ricky lived in the Boone County area most of his life. He graduated from Sturgeon High School in 1984, and then from Trant Vocational School with a degree in automotive technology. He worked for many years for Premiere Moving and Storage as the warehouse supervisor, and more recently he worked for YRC Freight as a truck driver. On August 10, 2019, Ricky married Ms. Leslie Kewley.
Anyone who knew Ricky knew one of his true passions was riding his motorcycle. He was a beloved member of the Mid West Infidels and the Missouri biking community as a whole. When he was not riding, Ricky would be found woodworking or if it was a weekend evening, you would be sure to find him enjoying a bonfire in his backyard. Ricky led an adventure filled life and will be greatly missed by all.
Ricky is preceded in death by his nephew, Jared Michael Reeves.
Survivors include his wife, Leslie Reeves of Columbia, Missouri; parents, Jack (Rowena) Reeves of Kingdom City, Missouri and Margaret (Patrick) Grammer of Alton, Missouri; children, Anthony “AJ” Vinyard, Matthew, Brittany, Heather all of Columbia, Missouri; siblings, Randy (Kelly) Reeves of Sturgeon, Missouri, Patty Reeves of Moberly, Missouri, DJ Reeves of Kingdom City, Missouri, Michael (Peggy) Grammer of Dayton, Ohio and Sherri Inks of Alton, Missouri; three grandchildren; nieces and nephews; one great niece; extended family and close friends.
