Funeral services will be held for Rick Ortego on Saturday, July 20, 2019 at 4:00 at Gallagher Funeral Home in Ball, Louisiana. Visitation will be from 3:00 p.m until 4:00 p.m. and a short service will follow after visitation. There will be no procession to the cemetery.

Rick passed away peacefully at the age of 48 with his mom by his side. He was a loving son, brother, nephew, cousin and friend who loved his family and loved his Lord. Our loss is heavens gain. Rick was a special gift from God and a gift is not a gift until you give it away. God was there with open opens to receive His gift back. We are feeling God’s embrace as he welcomes Rick and wraps his arms around him. We are feeling the peace that surpasses all understanding.
Today he walks the streets of gold. Today he sees Jesus. Many arms welcoming him into his sweet heavenly home. Until we see him again...

Survivors include his mother, Pam Faul, sisters Cori DePrato and Bethany Jones. He was preceded in death by his father, Joseph Calvin Ortego and paternal grandparents Calvin and Berna Ortego and maternal grandparents, Richard and Susan Goodart and cousins Trisha and John Harper and Logan Randall.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Ricks name to

I was Richard’s care taker and most importantly, his friend, during his time at Camp Able. He always carried a warm smile everywhere he went and he livened the entire camp with his presence. Richard was a familiar face and his welcoming hugs were remembered by all. He helped make me more confident in myself, while also sharing some of the best memories of my life with me. I’ll never forget the times we swam together, did karate, danced, shot a bow and arrow, or laughed together at his own silly jokes. Richard was a true blessing in my life and I will never forget the time spent with him. Heaven gained a wonderful person.
