Ricky K. Delauter, 64, of Toledo, OH, passed away Wednesday, August 21, 2019. He was born December 11, 1954, in Wauseon, OH, to parents Karl and Loretta Delauter. Ricky had a life-long passion for baseball (favorite team Red Sox), and enjoyed playing Strat-O-Matic Baseball with friends since age 12. He loved watching North Carolina Tar Heels basketball and was a high school all-state soccer goalie; he coached and played soccer until he was well into his 30’s. His love of music and guitar led him to form a band, where he met Linda, his wife of more than 30 years. Ricky was a genuinely good man with a witty personality, able to speak with anyone. He was a very hard working, dependable man, who lived his life for his family and friends; his loyalty and dependability was one of a kind. He will forever be missed.
He is survived by his son, Brad (Elicia) Delauter; and their children, Carmen and Lucas. Ricky was preceded in death by his parents; loving wife, Linda (Brought) Delauter, in 2016; and sister, Lisa Owens.
