Obituary for Melvin E. "Buck" Ricker

Melvin E. "Buck"  Ricker
Melvin E. “Buck” Ricker, 88, of Hummelstown, passed away Monday, February 12, 2018, in his home.
Born in Hummelstown on January 10, 1930, he was the son of the late Russell L. Ricker, Sr. and Ruth A. Yingst Ricker.
Buck could best be described as a farmer; he embraced the land, raised crops and dairy cattle. Locally he and his family were well known for raising and selling fresh turkeys. He was a 1950 graduate of Hershey High School. He was an US Army veteran. Buck was a longtime member of Stoverdale United Methodist Church. When not raising his cattle and turkeys, Buck loved to hunt, watch the deer on the property, and collect vintage tractors and automobiles. Although a very private person, Buck will be greatly missed by his family and close friends.
In addition to his parents, Buck was preceded in death by his brother, Russell L. Ricker, Jr.; and sisters, Gloria P. Vachon and Betty R. Gagion.
He is survived by cousins, Don Fasnacht and David “Chip” Horst; dear friend and hunting buddy, Wayne King; and several nieces and nephews.
Funeral services will be held Monday, February 19, 2018, at 11 AM in Stoverdale United Methodist Church, Middletown Road, Derry Township, with Pastor Scott R. Hover, officiating. Interment will be in the Stoverdale Cemetery. Family and friends will be received following the committal service.
Trefz & Bowser Funeral Home, Inc., 114 West Main Street, Hummelstown, is handling the arrangements.
Those desiring may send memorial contributions to the American Cancer Society, PO Box 897, Hershey, PA 17033 or to Doctors Without Borders, PO Box 5030, Hagerstown, MD 21741.
