Ricky Woodring
2.1.81 - 11.16.98

Ricky Woodring was 17 years old and a senior at Galena High School while on his way home from off campus baseball practice. Unfortunately, a driver failed to yield, and Ricky lost his life in the automobile accident. Ricky was a talented baseball pitcher and a gifted guitar and piano player. Ricky achieved academic success after receiving help for his ADD and said he would like to help people like himself one day.

Scholarships in Ricky’s name benefit baseball, music and special education. Additionally, the annual Ricky Woodring Memorial/Galena High School Golf Tournament has supported all Galena High athletic programs. It currently supports plans for an event plaza and also provides funds to the Babe Ruth organization for families in need.
