Ricky Joe Goetz, age 69 of Stuttgart passed away Sunday, May 5 at Baptist Hospital NLR. He was born May 27, 1954 in Stuttgart, Arkansas to the late John Leroy Goetz and Ina Mae Goetz-Skinner.

Rickey was a lifetime resident of Arkansas County. He was a welder with Layne Arkansas for over 20 years. When he wasn’t working, he was sure to be found at deer camp, or at the river fishing with friends and family. He had a multitude of longtime friends that he would’ve given the shirt off his back for. After retiring, he loved spending time in his garden, playing fetch with his beloved Boston Terriers and just being outdoors tinkering on things around his house.

He is survived by his daughter Heather Michelle (Brad) Hendrix of Almyra, and son Robert Brent Goetz of Stuttgart. He is also survived by a grandson Blake Sherman Hendrix.

The memorial service was held on Saturday, May 11 at 2 o’clock at the Almyra Community Center.
