Ricky Walk

We received sad news from Sharon Hopkins about long-time ApHC friend and judge, Ricky Walk.

Our friend Ricky Walk passed away Wed. afternoon at 2:15 PM. Visitation will be at Morgan Sifford Funeral Home(573) 222-3545 – 580 N Highway 51, Puxico, MO on Friday April 3 5pm, and the funeral will be in the Puxico High School Gymnasium on Saturday, April 4. at 1:00 pm. The school is the only place large enough to accomodate the expected crowd.

There are two flower shops in Puxico Country Blessings, 573-222-9930 , and In Bloom 573- 222-6106. However, the family has established a scholarship fund in lieu of flowers. RICKY WALK MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND, c/o Diane Barnfield, HC 2 Box 2271, Wappapello, MO 63966.

Diane is his cousin, who worked tirelessly to help Ricky get medical attention and make sure he was taken care of. She is the perfect one to keep track of this memorial.I am sure there will horse shows and fundraisers to keep the scholarship funded. Ricky was deeply involved with the youth in his community and served on the School Board. This is very fitting.

    Rick will be missed by his many friends he made over the many years he was involved with the Appaloosa horse.
    Rick began showing Appaloosa horses when he was growing up in Missouri.His Mom and Dad were big supporters of Rick showing as a youth and up until he quit showing to devote his time to judging.
