A tribute to Ricky M. Hadley, Adair Co., KY (1956-2013)

He never liked a lot of attention put on him so he chose not to have a funeral. At the end of his life he showed true courage and dignity, always showing his appreciation to his caretakers. He was a brave soul and will truly be missed by all.

He was born Tuesday, April 3, 1956, in Adair County, KY. He was the son of the late Benjamin F. Hadley and Mary E. Hadley, who survives. He died Saturday, November 16, 2013, at the age of 57 years, 7 months, and 13 days. He attended the Little Cake Christian Church and was a former factory worker.


Survivors include the following:
  • His mother: Mary E. Hadley of Columbia, KY

  • Three brothers: Dwan, Dwight and Terry Hadley all of Columbia, KY

  • Two sisters: Amber Susan Hadley Brockman of Paducah, and Patricia Hadley Zhatkoff of Florence, KY
Ricky Hadley was a beloved son, brother, uncle and friend. He loved God and his family.

His favorite place to be was in the woods. He loved nature of all kinds. Canoeing down the rivers and streams to hunting and camping, he just loved being out in nature.

Christmas was one of his favorite holidays and he always bought only American made gifts for each of his family members.

Sometimes wrapped in tin foil or brown paper, he wrapped each one himself and often added a humorous tag.

He never liked a lot of attention put on him so he chose not to have a funeral. At the end of his life he showed true courage and dignity, always showing his appreciation to his caretakers. He was a brave soul and will truly be missed by all.

We love you Ricky.

- The Hadley Family
