In Loving Memory of Ricardo (Ricky) A. Vivas
Dec. 02, 1959 – Apr. 8, 2020

Ricky Vivas, age 60, passed away peacefully, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 at his own home in Laguna Niguel, California, as he wished. Ricky was born December 2, 1959 in Lima, Peru to Jose Vivas and Lucy Justo de Vivas.

He went to Champagnat school in Miraflores, Peru, where he was very much loved and recognized for his academic achievements and his athletic abilities, reason why he was also known as Astroboy.

He came to study in the U.S., where he graduated as an engineer from Chico State University in Chico, California. With hard work and tremendous effort, he became a successful professional on his field.

Ricky is survived by his children, Ricardo D. and Paula M. Vivas, who were the most important thing is his life. He is also survived by his siblings Jose (Tino) and Lucy Vivas de Casis.

He leaves behind a countless number of long-life friends, who will always remember his determined spirit and his generous heart.

He was always successful in any sport he played, and you could find him surfing the local waves, or playing soccer at the field, especially coaching his children Ricardo and Paula and their teams.

His funeral services will be held privately at O’Connor Mortuary on April 21, 2020.

    Ricardo was an incredibly kind, positive and just an amazing person to know and work with. I started working with Ricardo at RMC and his passion, organization and work attitude came through on every project he touched. This is a huge loss to his family, friends and work colleagues and his spirit and memories will live on. Rest in peace Ricardo. Andy B.

  3. Conocí a Ricky desde que teníamos 5 años, hace 55 años ..estudiamos toda la época escolar juntos, fuimos amigos, todo el tiempo fue nominado como el “MEJOR AMIGO DE LA PROMOCIÓN”, siempre con una sonrisa, siempre dispuesto a ayudar, bromista, sencillo, siempre dispuesto a ayudar, nominado como el “MEJOR DEPORTISTA” del Colegio Maristas Champagnat, Cuando me fui a vivir a USA nos frecuentamos mucho y nos reuníamos los fines de semana a tomarnos un “Roncito”, comer unas carnecitas. conversar y reir mucho…. Ahora que regresé al Perú, cada vez que venía a Lima me llamaba para reunirnos. Te vi luchar contra ese cáncer, te vi pelear hasta el final. Fuiste un ejemplo de vida para mucha gente ….Lo quería mucho …Ricky era mi amigo , mi hermano …te voy a extrañar
