Ricky Lynn McDonald

December 24, 1960 — August 26, 2023

North Little Rock, Arkansas

Ricky McDonald was born on December 24, 1960 to Harry and Mary McDonald. He is survived by his father Harry McDonald of California, his three brothers Barry McDonald of Little Rock, Michael McDonald of Cabot, and Joeseph McDonald of North Little Rock, his daughter Cheryl Highfill of Ward, his son Ricky Allen McDonald of Oklahoma, his 6 grandchildren, Trey Legenbauer, Haylee McDonald, Jaiden Legenbauer, Daycen McDonald-Porter, Kenzie McDonald-Porter, & Braleigh McDonald-Porter, and 2 great grandchildren.

He was the man of many faces. He was very talented with his lifetime career of hanging siding, windows, and doors and could turn an ordinary home into your dream home. He always had a dream of opening up the first “mobile pawn shop” but his most and all time favorite past time was always music. He could play the guitar like no other. He could play the drums, keyboard, banjo, harmonica, etc.

As teenagers we were always embarrassed when our friends would come over because he would have all of us in the “band room” playing and singing. It’s funny now but it wasn’t back then.


Don’t think of me as gone away

my journey’s just begun,

life holds so many facets

this earth is only one.

Just think of me as resting

from the sorrows and the tears

in a place of warmth and comfort

where there are no days and years.

Think of how I’m wishing that

you could know today

how nothing but our sadness

can really pass away.

And think of me as living

in the hearts of those I touched…

for nothing loved is ever lost

and I was loved so much.
