Ricky E Conway

May 11, 1952 - February 8, 2020

Ricky E ConwayRicky E ConwayRick peacefully breathed his last breath on earth and his first breath in the arms of his Savior on Saturday, February 8th at 7am.  His two year battle with cancer is over and he will be sorely missed.  Born in Gary, Indiana, and living in California and now Oregon, Rick is survived by his wife: Wendy; his three daughters: Melanie Conway, Noelle Ahl, and Mandalyn Witty; his 15 grandchildren: Adam and Alex Navarro, Kristos and Cierra Merritt, Stephanie Hydo, Marshal, Tristan, Anyon, Ivory, and Alina Ahl, Kaelin Witty, Bradley, Dylan, Parry, and Braxton Killingbeck; and siblings, Wayne and JD Conway, Vickie Kinkaid, and Connie Williams. Rick was known for his love of family, and cherished his children and grandchildren. He had quite the sense of humor as well as an unforgettable singing voice. He was passionate about skating, horseback riding, and birds which he would whistle out of the air. He commanded wood with all his skills, both with power tools and downhome whittling. He was dedicated to his job and considered his co-workers to be extended family.

Rick's Memorial Service is planned for Saturday, March 7, 2020 at 11:00am.
Service will be held at Calvary Chapel Dallas 628 SE Jefferson, Dallas, OR 97338

I love you grandpa you are missed 

Heart felt condolences 

We sure love Rick! He gave his all during the past 12 years at Pinnacle and a lifetime in the industry. Lots of love and support to Wendy and the family. 



Many memories of Rick.  That happy bee boppin' walk in his boots, cheerful manner, enjoying that tall glass of ice tea (hmm, like Uncle Si), generous nature and kind heart.  At the end of any phone chat, he always let this sister-in-law know he loved her, such was his thought to not leave it unsaid.  A great example to follow.  Let your loved ones know they are loved.
Our loss for now, but we look forward to being reunited with you in eternity.  Thanks Rick, I love you still.

One of the most kindest souls I have ever met. The whole family is the salt of the earth. Loved Ricky and love his beautiful family. May you RIP and your family find peace through this heartbreaking time.

I sure will miss Rick. Rest in peace. 
Rick was a fine man and an excellent craftsman.Every time I walked by his bench it seemed like he was always building something unusual - never simple, often lot's of crazy angles! The shop knew that he could figure out how to build it.
