Mr. Richard Eugene Jones was born April 5, 1959 in Detroit, Michigan to Jacqueline Axson and James Jones.  Richard was educated in the Indianapolis Public School system at school #75 and graduated from Cold Springs Academy.
Richard was known by “Rick”, “Ricky” and “Nose”.  Anyone who knew him knew he was an avid skater, from a young man, until recently.  He skated at Roller Land, USA East and USA West.  He was a pro on a pair of skates.  Teaching many how to skate backwards and how to crossover.  Ricky was also known for his bikes, rode it all over town.  If he wasn’t on his bike that means it was broke down at the time. 
Ricky joined Phillips Temple C.M.E. under the leadership of Rev. Williamson.  He was employed at Lucas Oil Stadium, as a part-time security guard.  He had been very active in the National Guard.  He did four tours of duty during the years of 1977 – 1990.  In the last few weeks he had been helping to feed the homeless downtown. 
Mr. Richard Eugene Jones departed this life on January 17, 2013 at the age of fifty-three years old.  He was preceded in death by his father, two aunts and a cousin.  He will be missed. 
Richard leaves to cherish his memory his mother, Jacqueline Axson; sister, Tracy Axson; niece, Tia Axson and a host of cousins, other relatives and friends.  Because we all know Richard met no strangers.
