Tribute to Ricky Gabriel
(October 14, 1962 – January 2, 2022)
It is with deep regret that we announce the recent passing of Ricky Gabriel, one of the best at Metro Disaster Specialists. Please join us in offering his family and friends our sincerest condolences during this difficult time.
Ricky Gabriel, age 59, passed away on January 2, 2022.
Ricky was an instrumental part of our team for 19 years and helped grow our organization to what it is today by working on thousands of restoration losses. As lead restoration technician, he took pride in Metro and in his coworkers. Always there to lend a helping hand working countless long hours of the nights and weekends. Only to return back early the next day and make sure the coffee was brewing for his coworkers at Metro. He had a smile that could light up the room with his gentle personality. Metro’s employees and clients acknowledge that they are better people for having their relationship with him.
Metro will never be the same without Ricky. Thank you for your loyalty, friendship, and years of sacrifices. We will surely miss you, friend.
Ricky is survived by his wife, Connie, daughter, Tiffany, and son, Zachery. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers during this time.
A Memorial Service for Ricky is scheduled for 2:00 pm Thursday, January 13 at That Church on Kiehl Ave. in Sherwood. Please do not attend in person if you are sick, might have been exposed to COVID, or have a higher risk of severe illness from COVID.
