Derek Francis Stallings, 63, affectionately known as “Ricky” died on Monday, October 2, at Anchorage Healthcare Center in Salisbury, Maryland, surrounded by his loving family. He was born on June 2, 1960, in Crisfield, Maryland, to Robert “Bobby” White and Cora Stallings.

And he thoroughly and faithfully enjoyed watching the Philadelphia Eagles play. Ricky was easy to be around, and he will be missed by those who loved him.

You are from all eternity.
