Ricky L. Bolinger, age 54, and a longtime resident of Wabash, passed away on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021, in his home.

He was born on March 13, 1967, in Warsaw, the son of Ted Bolinger and Lanora Riggle. Ricky was born with cerebral palsy and received services through Cardinal Services in Warsaw for many years.

He loved stuffed animals of all types. He also loved television programs like “Hee Haw” and was simply enamored by infants and toddlers. Ricky liked children and always had a smile to share with others, strangers and friends alike. He was easy-going and will be dearly missed by those that shared in his life.

He was preceded in passing by his father, Ted Bolinger; and an infant sister, Cathy.

He is survived by his mother, Lanora (Mike) Riggle, of Leesburg, Fla.; brother, Monty (Jennifer) Bolinger, of Noblesville; nephews: Brian Bolinger, of Westfield; Scott Bolinger, of Syracuse; and Michael Bolinger, of Noblesville; and niece, Danielle Bolinger, of Noblesville. He is also survived by many cousins, aunts, uncles and a large extended family.

A Life Celebration® is planned with Titus Funeral Home of 2000 E. Sheridan St., Warsaw, where friends may gather on Saturday, April 10 beginning at 9 a.m. At 11 a.m., Aaron Jones, Pastor of the RUWM, will officiate Ricky’s funeral service, with burial to follow in Oakwood Cemetery.
