It is with a broken heart that I write the obituary of our dearly departed brother, Rickey Lee Rasnake, age 58, of Bristol, Virginia died March 27, 2023 at Bristol Regional Medical Center in Bristol, Tennessee following a long illness. Born September 20, 1964 in Richlands, Virginia, he was a son of the late Garmon and Phyllistene Rasnake of Davenport, Virginia. He loved the outdoors and especially enjoyed fishing and hunting.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by one niece, Cassie Marie Yates Owens.
