Ricky Stone - 20 Years

Two weeks after he started as a technician III two decades ago, Ricky Stone had a problem. He needed to ask his boss, Jerry Walker, for a day off to celebrate his wedding anniversary.
“It’s not a favorite memory but it’s one I’ll never forget! I was never so nervous in my life,” Stone says. “But Mr. Walker gave me the day off.”
Now a senior facilities services technician at Texas A&M Health Science Center Baylor College of Dentistry, Stone is responsible for keeping dental equipment in good working order. It’s a task that keeps him busy, especially since new dental chairs and equipment are the biggest changes he has encountered at the college.
“I like my job because there are new challenges all the time,” he says. “The people I work with are great.”
When he isn’t busy at TAMHSC-BCD, Stone enjoys riding his motorcycle and spending time with family. Married for 22 years to his wife Rachel, he has two sons, ages 14 and 21, and two grandchildren.
