My condolences to Mr. Waters’ family and friends. When I began working in the College of Ag at FVSU in 2005, Mr. Waters was one of the individuals I met early on. He was so welcoming and gracious and he had such a positive attitude. No matter when I saw him on campus for meetings or events he always greeted me the same with his award winning smile. For almost 20 years I had the pleasure of knowing this selfless human and I along with countless others will truly miss his presence. Rest well Ricky.
