Manfor Richard “Rick” Sedillo, 49, went to be with our Lord on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013. Mass was celebrated Oct. 5 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Winslow, with Father Jeffrey King officiating. Inurnment followed at Desert View Cemetery in Winslow.
He was born July 28, 1964, to Manfor and Stella Sedillo.
Rick was known for his dedication to his family and the community’s organizations. Many will remember him being the “man behind the camera lens.” He always took pictures at all the events and provided everyone with the pictures of their loved ones.
He enjoyed spending time with his children and family. If it was an outdoor event…he was there. He took great pride in his accomplishment of obtaining the Arizona State Championship in wrestling in 1983. There was a running joke with Rick that he was never a day over 43.
As a cancer survivor, Rick always wanted to give back whenever he could. He made a decision to become an organ donor so that another individual could conquer a battle. He will always be known as a hero, and his children are proud of the legacy their father will be known for.
Survivors include his daughter, Alexus Knickole Sedillo (Christopher Reyes); his son, Brandon Richard Sedillo; father, Manfor Sedillo; his brothers, Ralph (Leti) and Eddie; his sisters, Sarah and Lori; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his son, Jaycob Manfor Sedillo; his sister, Alice Egbert; his brother, David Sedillo; his mother, Stella Sedillo; and his nephew, Eric Sedillo.
Greer’s Mortuary of Winslow was in charge of the arrangements.Rick Sedillo
