Ricky was born on November 23, 1946, in Blakely SC. He was the son of the late Siril M. Bodiford, Sr. and late Gertice Cooper Bodiford. Ricky was a graduate of Berkeley High School in Moncks Corner, SC and proudly served in the United States Army. After returning from the Army, he worked for the Family-owned business. Ricky worked hand in hand alongside his brother Bill Bodiford with S.M. Bodiford and Sons Logging that was started by his father "Siril M. Bodiford, Sr." in 1942 and continues today through his nephew, Billy Bodiford. The logging company is a third-generation company featured in "Southern Loggin' Times" July 2012 edition. He enjoyed working in the woods with his family – no doubt logging was in his blood. The things he cherished most in life were his love for God and his family. He was an avid NHRA fan. He truly enjoyed going to local antique car shows where he would enter his 1964 Chevrolet Corvette in the shows. Ricky enjoyed traveling and going to different places – along the way enjoying fine dining. Ricky was a true and loyal friend – if you needed him, he was there. Ricky had the gift to gab – he loved telling jokes. He always had a joke or story every time he saw you and in a short period would have everyone laughing. Ricky was a very happy and loving Father, Grandfather, Son, Brother, Uncle and Friend - if you had the opportunity to know him you were truly blessed by an amazing person. He will be greatly missed. Affectionately known to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren as “Grandaddy" he loved spending time with them during their weekend breakfast meetings at different restaurants.
