Obituary for Richard Alan Hurling

Richard Alan Hurling (better known as Ricky) was born on August 20th 1959 to Joyce Hurling and the late Jack Barnes in Plainfield New Jersey.

Ricky was one of nine children and was educated in the Scotch Plains New Jersey school system. Growing up he was the little guy with a smile that would capture your heart. He was the apple of his mother’s eye. At a young age, his family relocated to Plainfield NJ.
He was employed with Allied Van Lines for a while.

Ricky was preceded in death by his father Jack Barnes.

On Sunday August 20th, 2017, his Fifty-eighth birthday and after a long illness God sent one of his Angels to let Ricky know it was time for him to come home. With heartfelt sorrow Ricky leaves to cherish his memories, his mother Joyce, five children, Andre, Richard (Maisha), Lorraine, Cordiero and Aaron; five grandchildren Tahir, Serenity, Eternity, Kameron and Cordiero; five sisters Vicki, Linda, Sylvia, Vivienne and Sierra; three brothers Raymond, Eric and Darien and a host of relatives and friends.

Don’t think of me as gone, my journey just begun. Life holds so many facets this earth is only one. Just think of me as resting from the sorrow and the tears, I’m in a place of warmth and comfort where there is no days or years. Think how I’m wishing that we could know today that nothing but your sadness can really pass away. And think of me as living in the hearts of thoses I’ve touched for nothing loved is ever lost and I was loved so much.
My Journey Just Begun
