Mr. Ricky L. Catrett, age 65, died Thursday, September 10, 2020, at his home in Brantley, Ala.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. Hayes Funeral Home of Elba is assisting the Catrett Family.
Ricky attended Enterprise State Community College after graduating from Brantley High in 1973. He went on to work at Fort Rucker landing fields for many years, then worked as a truck driver later in life. Ricky was a great reader and lover of books. He had the utmost respect for veterans and their service for his country. He particularly loved helicopters and planes. He was a die-hard Crimson Tide and Dale Earnhardt fan. He loved art and photography and was the person who always remembered the details: your birthday, your favorite color, and your favorite food.
He was preceded in death by his parents, James P. Catrett and Remona Adams Catrett; his paternal grandparents, James T. Catrett and Odis Betterton Catrett; his maternal grandparents, J. C. Adams and Cassie Hall Adams; and his brother-in-law, Martin John Campbell.
Survivors include his only child: Niki Linton, and his grandson: Colton Patch, Samson, Ala.; his brother: Perry Catrett (wife Ashley Oglesby Catrett), Luverne, Ala.; his sister: Pamela Catrett Campbell, Brantley; four nieces: Hollie Worley Reed (Charles), Montgomery, Ala., Courtney Rebekah Nelson, Athens, Ga.: Cassidy Catrett, and Cameron Catrett, both of Luverne; along with three grandnephews: James Campbell Nelson, Charles Ludlow Nelson, and John Adams Reed.
