Obituary for Ricky L. Bledsoe

Rick L. Bledsoe, age 63, of Clinton, MO, died on January 13, 2018, at St. Luke’s Hospital.

On January 13, 2018, in recognition of his heavenly musical talents, Ricky (Rick) Leroy Bledsoe signed the record deal of a lifetime with The Big Man Himself! In his (almost) 64 years of life, and with a degree in music, Rick blessed many with his incredible gifts. The way he played guitar has been described as "beautifully transcendent", "Amazing", even “Spiritual.”
Rick is now touring as lead guitarist & song writer with his celestial dream team, with opening artists including Tom Petty, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Janis Joplin.

His mother Viola Bailey, wife Gloria Bledsoe, daughter Ariel Vickery, his many grandchildren and his brothers & sisters already miss him greatly but know he is happiest on stage, and are cheering for him from their terrestrial seats.

A grand send-off in Rick’s honor will be held at Consalus Funeral Home on Thursday January 18th, at 1pm, followed by a Celebration of Life. Rick will, without a doubt, be providing a glorious solo guitar performance at the celebration, if only we were able to hear it.

Condolences may be left online at website.
