Ric was born July 25, 1956 in Fresno. He graduated from San Joaquin Memorial High School in 1974. At an early age, Ric exhibited artistic talents that ranged from drawing and painting to music. In high school, he was in the band and his love of music remained a passion throughout his life. He played the drums in the local band, Blurd Vision, and truly believed that music was good for the soul.

Ric also considered himself quite the chef and was always on the lookout for a new recipe to try. He had a talent for gardening and created his own private oasis wherever he called home. With all of his interests, Ric also went back to school and was working on completing his degree. He took great pride in his scholastic accomplishments.

Ric was a gentle soul who loved to joke and tease those of us lucky enough to be close to him. He will be missed...he left this world too soon.

He was preceded in death by this father Richard A. Mahackian Sr.

He is survived by his two children, Ric and Christine Mahackian. Besides his children, he is survived by his mother, Geraldine Mahackian; sisters, Susan Mahackian, Kathy Mahackian King and Mary Ann Yee; uncles, Lawrence Deran and Ronald Mahackian; and aunt, Nancy Mahackian. Other survivors left behind are Evelyn Vargas, her children and grandchildren and Vera Mendrin.

A Memorial Mass will be held at the Shrine of St. Therese Catholic Church on Saturday, January 21, 2012, at 10:00 a.m.
