Memorial services will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at Evant High School Gymnasium, 101 N. Memory Lane, Evant. Interment was in Live Oak Cemetery in Hamilton County.

Mr. Mauney was born Sept. 11, 1957, in Huntsville to Pete and Dorothy (Dot) Gregson Mauney. He attended a private Christian school, Katy Country School, graduating from there in 1976. He graduated from Tarleton State University with a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Education. After college, he worked for Chaparral Steel in Midlothian for many years, long enough to set aside enough resources to return to his true love and family roots of agriculture. He moved to Evant to pursue his dreams of rural living and farming. He established Ricky Mauney Dairy and Mauney Farms.

After his dairy career, he began custom farming and a silage chopping operation. Ricky had an entrepreneurial spirit, from a young age, he sold worms, buying / selling pipe as a teenager, trading equipment, baling hay, combining and anything that kept him close to his love of agriculture and “the land.”

He married Melissa Moore Burke on April 17, 2004. Together, they owned and operated, Harrington Station in Evant for several years. He was also a driving force and supporter of his wife to establish Mauney and Associates, a child placement and social services agency.

In recent years, he ranched and established Mauney Ag Service, where he primarily provided custom farming and hay baling services, along with equipment repair and service.

He is survived by his wife, Melissa Mauney; parents, Pete and Dot Mauney of Brenham; daughter, Rebecca Mauney of Washington State; sons Craig Mauney and wife Audra and Justin Mauney and wife Erin, all of Hamilton; brother Dennis Mauney and wife Lynda of Bellville; seven grandchildren, Spicer, Hunter, Halstyn, Knox, Lyla, Cooper and Pace; and many nieces and nephews.

In the spirit of Ricky’s love of agriculture, memorials may be made to any 4-H program in Coryell and Hamilton counties.
