Mr. Ricky H. Mattox, age 64, of Blackshear, passed away Monday afternoon (3/4/19) at his residence following a short illness.

Born June 15, 1954 in Alma, GA, he was a son of the late Sands Stanley and Cleo Henderson Mattox. He lived all of his life in Pierce County where he was a 1973 graduate of Blackshear High School.  He had worked for CSX Railroad, was a security officer at Satilla Regional Medical Center (now Memorial Satilla Health), and had been a self-employed bail bondsman.  He was a member of Southgate Baptist Church.

Ricky will be remembered as a true comedian, bringing laughter and excitement wherever he was with his jokes and impersonations of local friends and family.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Tracy “Oats” Mattox; 2 sisters, Latrelle Judkins and Alice Altman; and his father-in-law, Charles Bowen.

Survivors include his wife, Becki Bowen Mattox of Blackshear; 3 sisters, Clovis Simmons (Gene) of Clinton, SC, Joyce Anderson (Ed) of Smyrna, GA, and Vicki Brigman of Blackshear; 2 brothers, Troy Mattox (Sue) and Shelby Mattox (Gail), both of Blackshear; his mother-in-law, Rena Gibbs Bowen of Blackshear; 2 sisters-in-law, Jami Bowen and Joli McQuaig (Alton), both of Blackshear; a brother-in-law, Mark Bowen (Teresa) of Blackshear; his daughter, Staci Castro of Blackshear and her children, Nicholas Bennett, Gabriel Castro, and AnnaLeigh Castro; and many special nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

A funeral service will take place on Thursday (3/7/19) at 11 AM in the chapel of Hart Funeral Home. Burial will follow in the Beulah Baptist Church Cemetery.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday evening (3/6/19) from 6-8 PM at the funeral home.
