Obituary for Eric Henri "Ricky" Mossett

Eric Henri "Ricky" Mossett
An athlete, visionary, entrepreneur, immaculate dresser, linguist, suave, debonair...are ornaments which hung from the evergreen tree of ... Eric Henri "Ricky" Mossett.

Ricky sprouted on February 17, 1967 to Debrea J. Mossett and the late Herbert L. Mossett. He was most fragrant to the late Rev. H.L. James as Ricky was the first born grandchild.

With an early desire to serve God, Ricky became grounded and rooted at Macedonia A.M.E. Church. While continuing to grow, Ricky grew leaves as he served on the Usher Board, Sunday School, YPD, the Macedonia A.M.E. Youth Choir, Sons of Thunder Male Chorus and the S.E. Haywood Gospel Choir.

Ricky's roots became branches as he played on the varsity football and basketball teams and ran track for Arcadia High School. He was a representative for the school at the Model General Assembly in Richmond, Virginia where he learned the political process in hopes of becoming politically astute upon returning to the Shore.

After graduating from Arcadia High School in 1985, he uprooted and flowered at Virginia Union University in Richmond, Virginia.

Ricky's prize flower was becoming an entrepreneur of the Candy Castle...the big, orange truck...where his branches extended to build more relationships and services to the many locales of the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

Ricky's growth became stunted and he relocated to Dallas, Texas. It was there he began to flourish and fulfill many of his dreams and desires. He was an electrician, a plumber, a tailor and designer of his own clothing line and a long distance truck driver. His greatest reward was aiding others during their times of need as he became a Licensed Practical Nurse.

Ricky continued to grow more branches as he became affiliated with M.W. Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Virginia, Free and Accepted Masons, Inc.

In 2016, Ricky reestablished roots at Virginia Union University, Richmond, Virginia and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Entrepreneur Management.

On Thursday, May 25, 2017, our evergreen tree became heavenly rooted as he ever so peacefully bowed in humble submission to his Master's call. He was preceded in death by his father, Herbert L. Mossett and grandparents, Rev. Henry and Ann D. James.

Our evergreen tree, known as Ricky, has many seeds, roots, branches and stems through a host of family and friends.

Ricky's roots of his evergreen include: his mother, Debrea J. Mossett; his sisters, Adrienne Mossett and Dr. Janice Alleyne (Kenneth); his children, Kevon (Kim) Rice, Patrice Smith, Ashley Dericott and Erica Mossett; grandchildren, Jamier Thomas, Ziaire Edward Stevenson and Noah Jean-Joseph Rice; nephews, Jordan Alleyne and Kenneth Alleyne, II; niece, Karrington Alleyne; aunts, Margarette L. Knuckle and Raechelle (Rev. Ronald J.) Knight; uncles, Anthony L.(Beverly) James and Aubrey Douglas; cousins; and a special friend, Margaret Williams.
