Richard "Ricky" Joseph Lussier, Jr. went home to be with Jesus on Friday, November 5th, 2021. Ricky was born to Richard Lussier Sr., and the late Cynthia (Stacy) Lussier on July 25th, 1985 in Fitchburg, MA. He was a child with voracious curiosity and his love of big toys began at a young age when he operated a backhoe at the age of 3, and continued on throughout his life with motorcycles, paramotors, various large machinery, and all things that go BOOM!
Ricky met the love of his life, Elizabeth Galster in 2008 at Elm Street Church in Fitchburg, MA, and they were married in 2012. They went on to open their home and hearts to many, including fostering many children, and adopting their son, Steven, in January of 2019.
Ricky is survived by his wife, son, father, brother Brandon Lussier and his wife Kimberly-Ann, as well as brothers and sister-in-love, 6 foster children, several cousins and many chosen family members. Ricky was welcomed into Glory by his mother, grandparents, uncle, cousin, and many others who passed before him.
Ricky will forever be known for making the best (dankest) beef jerky, chasing the next adrenaline high, and stopping the world at a moment's notice when anyone came to him for help. His sarcasm and unwavering faith will be remembered and cherished by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
***UPDATE*** Out of an abundance of caution, and due to a Covid discovery, calling hours and services for Ricky have been postponed temporarily. Please check here frequently for further updates on rescheduled events.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Steven's College Fund or Camp Monadnock.
