Ricardo "Rico" Rivera, Jr.

July 4, 2006 — March 4, 2024

Ricardo Rivera Jr was born to Ricardo Rivera and Vanessa Rivera in Houston, Texas. He was the brother of Ashley Salinas, Jose Salinas, and Kimberly Salinas. Ricardo attended Dobie High School and Cypress Spring High School. Rico was a charismatic and kind soul. He was always helpful and outgoing. He was confident but very humble. He always put others first and was very respectful. Rico always made sure he looked presentable, with his unique hairstyles, fits, cowboy boots, and hats. His handsome face carried a smile on it every day. He would always crack jokes and bring light into the room. Ricardo was one of a kind. Some of Rico’s hobbies included dancing, especially cumbias, norteñas, and corridos,
listening to music, singing, watching movies, playing soccer, going out to the mall, playing video games and spending time with friends and families. Rico loved his sweets, such as brownies, strawberry lemonade and Nesquik chocolate milk. He loved eating carne asada, McDonald, and wings. He also loved trucks and his dogs, Odin and Prince. Ricardo Rivera Jr. will always be remembered and honored as the happiest person. He was one of a kind firework that brought nothing but joy to our lives who had a beautiful aura, although his light was blown out earlier than what he expected. Rico’s legacy will live on through family and friends.
