Rickie Lynn Herd Obituary

Rickie Lynn Herd, 66, shed his earthly pain on June 8, 2024 at his home in Wichita Falls, TX. He was born November 3, 1957, in Norman, OK.

Rickie was a family man who proudly worked for the City of Wichita Falls for 25 years, retiring as the Parks Department Supervisor.  He helped to develop the city’s parks, the falls, & almost all of the ornamental structures throughout town, including helping design the Water Mill. He had a passion for the CB radio & music, a love of nature, & working with his hands as a mechanic & carpenter. Rickie was a jack-of-all-trades. Although serious at times, he could make you laugh until you cried. He said what he meant & meant what he said. If you needed him, he was there. Although he didn't have a church home, he loved the Lord. He accepted Jesus as his Lord & Savior & had faith every step of the way!

Rickie is survived by his wife Michelle (Howard) Herd, children Rhonda (Herd) & Nick Patterson of Phoenix, AZ, Rebecca Herd & Jonathon Alfano of Manistee, MI, & Raymon Herd of Wichita Falls, TX; grandchildren James, Raena, Asher, Katlyn, Michael, Raymon, Ricky, Justin, & Everly; great-granddaughter Lillian, nephews & nieces, many family, & friends. He has joined son Rickie Lee Herd, parents Raymond & Phyllis, & sisters Patricia, Kathleen, & Melinda to play dominoes.


Celebration of Life will be June 19, 2024 at 2pm at the Log Cabin in Lucy Park, 100 Sunset Dr., Wichita Falls, TX 76301. A Memorial Service will be held at Grandfield Memorial Park, Grandfield, OK.
