Ricky Lee Sneve was born July 21st, 2010 in Sioux City IA at St. Luke’s Hospital. He lived in Akron IA for the first year of his life. He then lived in Alcester SD where he made his first friends. January 27th, 2012 we moved to Hudson SD and that is where Ricky lived out his life! He was a river rat. Loved to fish. To wrench on anything with a motor. Enjoyed riding his bike with his siblings and friends.
From playing football in the yard with his brothers, to running around town with friends, playing Barbies with his sister, helping his dad at the shop, or helping mom with cleaning and the kids, he always wanted something to do. And, we never hesitated to give him something to do.
Ricky truly loved his family and friends. He shared special bonds with so many different people. You couldn’t look beyond his infectious smile and couldn’t help but be amazed by his intelligence. At 10 years old, Ricky had an amazing work ethic and a desire to be the best he could be for all around him. We raised a young boy who left us as a young man and true hero!
