It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Ricardo Contreras on May 16, 2023, at the age of 55. Born on March 1, 1968. Ricardo was a devoted father, a loving son, and a friend to many.
He fought stage 4 cancer since 2019. He fought as hard as he could. Sadly, towards the end, it spread too much. It was so sad having to see him look so good to just a couple of weeks later him not being able to eat or talk or even have a conversation anymore due to his pain.
My dad loved all his kids and his grandson. We loved him so much as well, and will miss him so much. Always making us laugh with his silliness. Or always disagreeing with us.
My dad will be remembered for his kindness, generosity, and sense of humor. He brought joy to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. Rest in peace dad, I love you so much, and I will always have you in my heart. Your life was far too short, but your impact will be felt forever. Arrangements are under the direction of the JOSEPH P. REARDON FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION SERVICE, Ventura, CA.
