His father, Peter Riccoboni, brothers David and Denis Riccoboni and their spouses Renae Nelson and Stacy Riccoboni. And many other extended family members who love him very much.

His career began at Motorola Semiconductors in the technology industry, continuing onto America West/US Airways Airlines and finished his career at Invitrogen/Life Technologies/Thermofisher Scientific, San Diego, CA in 2015. He achieved high levels of expectations on every demand that was placed on him. He had a passion for learning and read continuously. His hobbies included spending time with his family, fishing, hunting, scuba diving and spending time at Cornerstone Church and his Men’s Bible study group. His beautiful smile and friendly, giving personality will be missed by all.
He leaves behind a great legacy of his faith in Jesus, dedication for his family and a huge heart filled with love for every life he touched.
