Richard Schroeder

Richard “Ricky” Schroeder of Warrenton, MO passed away at the age of 36 on November 26, 2021. He was preceded in death by his mother, Colleen (née McGough) Schroeder.


Ricky is survived by his children, Landon, Elizabeth, Carter, and Hinsley; his father, Richard G. Schroeder; his siblings, Sarah (Mike) Huddleston and Caitlyn (Mark) Schepker; and his dear friend, Abby.


Ricky was known for his huge heart and his endless love for his family, always cherishing the time they spent together and the memories they made over the years. He was selfless, compassionate, and the sort of man who wouldn’t hesitate to give someone the shirt off his back if they needed it.


For fun, Ricky was fond of spending his time outdoors and going camping or fishing with friends and loved ones. He loved to get out and spend a day on the golf course. His grilling skills were legendary – he was known to be out there cooking even during a snowstorm. The holidays were Ricky’s favorite time of the year and he never missed a chance to go all out in decorating just like Clark Griswold. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.


In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Ricky’s name may be made to Boys and Girls Clubs of America.


A Memorial Mass will be held on Tuesday, December 7th at 10:00 am at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Warrenton, MO – 724 E Main St, Warrenton, MO 63383.

    Beautifully spoken, Brandon. I know that you and Slick Rick had a special bond. R.I.P. Slick Rick!!! We definitely had some great times all together back in the day. Thank you, Lord, for comforting all who have been impacted by this. Psalm 34:18.

    The day Ricky was born God Blessed him. He had a big heart and a love for life. Now he is in God’s and his Mother’s hands. We will all miss him, but he is in a better place than all of us. I love you Ricky

    This is sad to see rich was a good guy. I met him while I belive we were in middle school we became friends and stayed like that. Lost touch after highschool which is sad. I ran into a few times once while picking up plants for my home. He was as cheerful and full of life as always. My condolences to hid family and friends I’m so sorry. I pray god helps you through this tough time.

    Rick was a one of a kind man. He was the type of guy that just made a dark room turn light. It was impossible to have a bad day being around him. We all love you rich and will forever cherish together the beautiful memories that you have blessed us all with. The other day I went to church and god led me to the row of seats that you sat in. The whole entire service I could feel the presence of rich and all of his new heavenly friends. You will be dearly missed here on earth but will forever be in our hearts. We look forward to the day we all meet again. Hold us a nice warm spot in heaven .. until we meet again rich!
