Rickey passed away peacefully in his home on April 18, 2018, with Marsha, the love of his life, by his side. He was preceded in death by his father, Carl Herman Domaschk, mother, Virginia Lee Anderson Domaschk, brothers, Kirk Wright Domaschk and Kevin Blaine Domaschk. Rickey is survived by his brother Gregory Carl Domaschk and wife, Vickie Handy Domaschk, nieces; Jenny Marie Morrow and husband, Christopher and Kelly Shay Batres and husband, Ivan, as well as great-niece, Rylee Michelle Scurry.
Rickey was born in Port Arthur, Texas. His family moved to the Willowbend area of Houston when he was five. He attended Red Elementary and then Westbury High School. Rickey was a cross country trucker for 41 years. His truck was his office and his pulpit. Via the internet, he had Internet Christian Church. He considered preaching the gospel up and down the highways of America and all the sights he saw as the best job ever. He last drove for Gordon Trucking out of Seattle for eight years, winning many safety awards for his perfect driving record.
In 2014, Rickey experienced four mini-strokes and other health issues which halted his driving career. The next five years proved to be his longest haul. Due to exposure to Agent Orange and asbestos on Navy ships during the Vietnam War (1970-1974), his lungs began to scar. He was placed on 10 liters of oxygen and was diagnosed with ILD, TTP, ITP, COPD (didn't smoke), plus other issues. Rickey received a double lung transplant on March 13, 2016, followed by 25 visits to the hospital, but chronic rejection ended his life at 12:40 pm on April 18, 2018.
Peacefully, he took his last breath, and he entered into the arms of Jesus!
Rickey loved life and loved his Lord.
