BERLIN -- Richard "Ricky" Michael Paul Pearson, 23, died Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2010.

Ricky was born Aug. 24, 1986, in Norristown, Pa.

He attended Corpus Christi Catholic Elementary School in Lansdale, Pa., before moving to his favorite place in the world, the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Ricky attended Berlin Intermediate School, Stephen Decatur Middle School and graduated from Stephen Decatur High School in 2005, where he played on the football team and was an active member of the music program.

Ricky moved to the Shenandoah Valley, where he attended the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music for four years. He returned to the Eastern Shore and attended Salisbury University for one semester. He had been working toward a Bachelor's Degree in music.

Ricky loved the Shore, so it is fitting that he spent his summers either on a fishing boat or working at Crabs-to-Go. Ricky loved music ... his life was music. He spent his days listening to, writing, arranging and making music. He was an accomplished vocalist and an amazing pianist. He loved playing the guitar and saxophone as well.

Ricky was an active member of Phi Mu Alpha Music Fraternity, sharing music with the community and a member of St. John Neumann Catholic Church.

Ricky is survived by his parents, Rich and Cheri Pearson; his brother and sister, Kenny and Allison; grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins; his "boys," his Phi Mu Alpha Music Fraternity brothers; and many loving friends.
