Marching with Pride
Ricky Allan McGee was born in Lewisville, Texas and loved life. He attended all Lewisville schools and graduated from Lewisville High School in 1976. Ricky was a member of the LHS Band that Marches With Pride and proudly played the trombone all four years of high school.
He also was a part of the East Texas State University band in 1976, but later graduated from University of Texas at Dallas in 1983 with a degree in Business and emphasis in Information Technology. He married the love of his life, Kim, in August of 1979. They have two children Justin McGee and Kayla McGee and four grandsons. Ricky loved his kids and grandsons and was a great Pa-Paw.
Ricky began work for EDS in 1989 and continued with them through their various name changes for 30+ years. He participated in Junior Achievement and gave Career Day speeches. His passion was unmatched in encouraging young people to find their own passion in whatever education or hard work it took to accomplish it.
He was an avid Farmer Fan with season tickets for well over 25 years and only gave them up when he became a football official. For 10 years he worked diligently to reach the highest level you could achieve. He had his own “crew” and couldn’t wait for Friday Night Lights.
Ricky was an active member of the Flower Mound Church of Christ and loved the Lord. He was a fine example of a good Christian man and shared his faith with many. He taught Bible classes for 40 years and still maintains relationships with a lot of the kids he taught.
His interest in music carried throughout his life. In 2016 he organized and chaired the first LHS Band Reunion which brought back some previous band directors and alumni who played in a concert. The event was attended by many and Ricky loved every moment.
Ricky is survived by his wife Kim, son Justin and wife Katia, daughter Kayla McGee and grandsons Aidan, Bennett, Cole and Peyton. He is also survived by his father Allan McGee and step-mother Kim and his mother Virginia McGee. Also survived by his sister Renee McGee and Sherri Suggs and brother-in-law Billy Ray. Also by his beloved niece Hannah. He was a family man and loved by his many relatives.
He would be so proud that his LHS Band legacy and memorial go toward someone whose has been in the LHS Band. His Farmer Pride will live forever….
