Ricardo Briseno

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Ricardo “Looney” Briseno on Monday morning, June 8th 2009, as the result of a tragic automobile accident. Ricardo was born on January 26, 1982 in San Diego, California. He was a life time resident of Fillmore, where he attended San Cayetano and Sespe Elementary schools, as well as Fillmore Middle school and Fillmore High School, where he made many lasting friends. He enjoyed playing AYSO soccer and Fillmore Raiders Football. Some of his favorite past times were playing darts, listening to old school music, as well as oldies. His favorite rapper was Lil One. He also enjoyed gambling at the casino and watching sports on television. His favorite team was the New York Yankees. His dream was to attend a game at Yankee Stadium. He would always tell a story with a straight face, making it difficult to know if it was true or just a joke. In 2004 he met Yvette Ledesma and together they were the loving parents of two children. Ricardo referred to his son, Ricardo Jr. as his “pride” and his daughter, Inez as his “joy.” In spite of the challenges he faced in his young life, he was able to accomplish much. He has left a lasting mark on those whose lives he touched and he will never be forgotten.

He is survived by his loving companion, Yvette Ledesma, son, Ricardo Jr., daughter, Inez Marie, Yvette’s parents Monica and Miguel Martinez and her grandparents, John and Cornelia Hernandez, who were very fond of him. He is also survived by his mother, three sisters and his maternal grandmother, “Mama Lucita,” as well as numerous friends.

“If we could have a lifetime wish, a dream that could come true, We’d pray to God with all our hearts for yesterday and you!
A thousand words can’t bring you back, we know because we’ve tried. Neither will a thousand tears, we know because we’ve cried.
You left behind our broken hearts, and happy memories too. But we never wanted memories, we only wanted you!” Author Unknown
Services were under the direction of Garcia Mortuary. Please remember Ricardo in your prayers.

Ricardo Briseno
As we mourn our beloved son, brother and father Ricardo Briseno, we reminisce of his life.
He came from a family of five including mother Concepcion Enriquez, sisters, Brenda, Carla and Lisa. He was born in San Diego, CA on January 26, 1982 and died on June 08, 2009 in a horrible car accident.

As we remember his life, our thoughts go back to when he was a little boy. We remember him always a practical joker, making people laugh. He was a kindhearted since the beginning of his life. As he grew up he enjoyed being with his friends, he then became a father to Ricardo Jr. and Ines Marie. Fatherhood became his number one priority. His pride in his kids was shown to everyone. So now as we find ways to cope with this sudden loss, we want him to know he will forever be missed and kept in our hearts and prayers. Ricardo, We love you!
