Weslaco-Rickey Lee Rowlett, 56, passed away on Monday, November 15, 2021. On March 21, 1965, Rickey was born to Jack Rowlett and Billie Ann Daly Rowlett in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Rickey grew up in Donna with his four brothers. He attended Donna Highschool and played football for the Donna Redskins. Rickey worked as an electrician for many years, but he had several jobs, including working in the concrete business and driving 18 wheelers. However, Rickey was most proud of graduating from the police academy at the top of his class.
Rickey married Guadalupe “Lupita” Trevino in 1997, and they spent the rest of their lives together. Rickey was a support system to Lupita and always wanted the best for her. Rickey had a big heart and was passionate about helping others. Rickey was a good samaritan on countless occasions and never expected anything in return.
Rickey enjoyed going on long rides to the beach. He was the life of the party and never ran out of funny jokes.
Most importantly, Rickey was a true believer in Jesus Christ. He accepted Christ as his savior and the grace that can only come from God. Now, Rickey is free of all pain and illness.
Rickey is preceded in death by his father, Jack Rowlett. He is survived by his loving wife, Lupita T.
