As anyone who met him knew, Ricky was a spirited, wonderful man who left an impression wherever he went. He clearly left a hole in the hearts of many at the Arizona Court Interpreters Association:
The Court Interpreter family lost someone very dear with the passing of
Ricardo González after a courageous fight with lung cancer.
Ricardo was a long-term member of ACIA and had a wide circle of friends.
Everyone who knew Ricardo loved him and he returned that love and more.
The world was richer for his warmth and sense of humor.
We miss him greatly but will always remember his indomitable spirit and unwavering positivity.
I hope they forgive me for using photos from their newsletter in celebration:
