Jose Filiberto Rico was born on August 22, 1952 in San Miguel De Allende, Mexico. Filiberto and Pedro Munoz came to the states together to fulfill their dream of a better life for themselves and their loves ones at home. Through the years he was able to do just that! He was an honest hardworking person where he dedicated 25 years of his life to Donald Berg, owner of River Ridge Ranch. Filiberto had so much love and spirit for everything he did. He enjoyed spending his time being on the ranch, whether it was just walking, hiking, or riding his bike around with his dogs that he loved so much. He was not just adventurous, he was also so kindhearted and loving. His greatest joy was the only family he had with him. He always put his family first. This includes Pedro and Dolores Munoz, their children and grandchildren. The kids always considered him a second dad to them. He was there since they were born and showed them all endless love. Filiberto was like a big brother to Pedro, who he always took care of, laughed with, fought with, and cried with. He always loved, supported, and never shied away when he was needed during everyone's struggles. Filiberto's kindness reaches others more then just his family but also others he could not help. Fili's love will always be carried on by Pedro and Dolores, Albert and Sara Lara, Charly and Daniela Gonzalez, Norberto Rivera, Violeta and Jasmin Munoz, and their children, Ivan Rivera, Sophia and Graciela Lara, Izmael Gonzalez and Mylene Munoz. We love our beautiful angel forever.
