In memory of
Angelo Joseph "Ricky" Ricca
Angelo Joseph "Ricky" Ricca entered into eternal rest on Monday, June 29, 2020, at the age of 73, surrounded by his loving family. He was born on June 15, 1947 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The beautiful thing about Angelo was that his loving spirit made him a father figure to all he knew; he welcomed any who needed him with open arms and paternal care, and will always be remembered for his fatherly love and wisdom. He touched the lives of so many, and will be missed by his children, those by blood and those by bond. He was a mentor to many and he and his advice will be terribly missed. Angelo is preceded in death by his parents Peter A. Ricca and Althea W. Ricca; siblings Peter J. Ricca, Sr., Roland A. Ricca, Sr., David J. Ricca, Elizabeth R. Howell, Mary R. Mackenroth; and daughter Anna M. Ricca. He is survived by his loving wife of 15 years Junelle T. Ricca; daughters Rachel E. Ricca, Julie C. Ricca, Jennifer A. Thompson, and Corinne E. Herrera (David); son Geoffrey E. Eustis; sisters Julie R. Puderer, Celeste A. Ricca, and Rene R. Hill; brother Harry J. Ricca; grandchildren Jackson J. Ricca, Caroline E. Herrera, Noah M. Herrera and Elijah M. Diaz. Angelo owned and operated White Pillars Emporium and Ricca Demolishing Corporation alongside his family. He was an avid car enthusiast and loved nothing more than rebuilding his beloved Ford Model As and bringing various houses and/or boats back to their formal glories. He truly loved New Orleans and all that it encompassed. Relatives and friends are invited to attend the Memorial Gathering on Thursday, July 9, 2020 from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home, 5100 Pontchartrain Blvd. New Orleans. Interment will follow in Metairie Cemetery. Due to the current restriction in Orleans Parish, attendees are required to wear face masks at the funeral home. The family is grateful for your understanding and compassion in this trying time. To view and sign the guest book, please visit www.lakelawnmetairie.com.
