Richard John Melgoza, 42, of Colorado Springs passed away October 5, 2020. He was born May 19, 1978 in Harbor City, CA to Ralph and Joann Melgoza .

Ricky was a great friend and loved helping people. He was full of energy and lit up the room with just his presence. His smile and laugh were contagious and he had a way of making people feel good . He was passionate about fast cars and loud music and was so fun to be around. Ricky enjoyed taking rides with his mom, Joann, in her nice cars and spent time with her nearly every day. He loved detailing her cars and making them shine with beauty. He made a difference in people who were blessed to know him. He is gone too soon and is missed dearly, but will never be forgotten.

Richard is preceded in death by his father, Ralph Melgoza; his brother, Gary Castillo and son, Jayden Melgoza.

He is survived by his mother, Joann Melgoza; his fiancé, Angela Bird; his three children, Arianna, Gabriel and Waylon; a granddaughter, Maya Martinez; and his siblings, Steven Castillo, Michelle & Jorge Melgoza-Marquez, Phillip Melgoza and Ralph , Jr.
