Obituary

BURTON, SR., Rickey Dale – 64 of Mechanicsville, peacefully passed away surrounded by his devoted wife and loving family on June 1, 2022. He was greeted in heaven by his parents and siblings. Left to cherish his memory are his beloved wife of 44 years, Diane Burton; 7 children, Brenda Lee (Earl), Tabatha Mihalcoe (John), Rickey Burton Jr. (Tina), Felicia Nelson (Michael), Kenny Burton (Victoria), Cassandra Schneider (John), and Kim Dunlap; 12 grandchildren, Jenna, Ricky III, Katelyn, Savannah, John V, Alyssa, Madelyn, Kennadi, Catherine, Peytonn, David and Eli; 2 nieces, Rose and Christy; 3 nephews, Jason, Will, and Brad; and his loving dog Romeo. Rickey was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend. In his younger years, he was employed by Phillip Morris and successfully operated his own business, Burton’s Tile, for many years until retirement. He was a master of his craft with a keen eye for detail. Over the years he served as a teacher and mentor to many young people, teaching them his trade and to appreciate life. Rickey was always optimistic, honorable, strong, courageous, gentle, kind, and loving and a pillar of strength to his family and all those he met. He enjoyed fishing and having a good time, but his greatest love was his time spent with his family. He ingrained in his children the importance of family, Sunday dinners together, and the strength they have when they are united as one. His grandchildren were his pride and joy, second only to his beautiful wife, whom he cherished. The family will receive friends from 2 – 4 and 6 – 8 pm, Tuesday, June 7, 2022, at Monaghan Funeral Home, 7300 Creighton Pkwy., Mechanicsville, VA 23111, where a funeral service will be held at 4 pm, Wednesday, June 8, 2022. Though they will miss him greatly, the family finds peace in the thought that he has been reunited with his siblings, and that the Burton boys will watch over them as their guardian angels until they join them in heaven. Rickey leaves behind a legacy of love and a strong family to carry on his traditions.
