January 2, 1982 - November 20, 2020
Richard 'Ricky' Rosendahl, 38, passed away on Friday, November 20, 2020. He was born in Waukegan, IL on January 2, 1982. From the time he was young he loved spending time with his family and was a very loyal friend and gave great hugs. His fondness for cars began young, and he was an avid car enthusiast throughout his life. Ricky also had a deep passion for music, was great at karaoke, and could sing every word from nearly any song. For this reason, he reigned as four-time undefeated champion in a game he adored called Name That Tune, which he was very proud of and known as Rowdy Rick Rosendahl. Above all, he cherished being an Uncle and getting visits from his niece Kennedy. Ricky endlessly offered to help people with his wealth of knowledge or a helping hand. He frequently acted as "social director" ambitiously organizing events and gatherings for the people in his life. He was outgoing, funny, and could talk to anyone for hours on end without losing interest. Although he struggled in life, his resilience was unwavering. His smile would brighten your day, and his laugh was seriously contagious. Ricky will be remembered for the positive influence he had on many lives. Don't think of him as gone - but instead in the car of his dreams, with the windows down, his favorite music playing loud on the best road trip of his next adventure. Godspeed Ricky. You will be missed dearly. Until we meet again. Ricky is survived by his mother Jennifer (Jay) Barber; father Rick (Suzanne) Rosendahl; siblings Stephen Rosendahl, TJ Barber, Collin (Michelle) Barber, Kenny Barber, and Morgan (Roedon) Tisdale; niece Kennedy; and by many other family members. Cremation and burial of the cremated remains will take place privately with family.
