Ricky Texada’s COVID-19 Diagnosis and Death

Ricky Texada was born on September 18, 1963, and hailed from Louisiana. He passed away on August 30, 2021, at the age of 57.

The illustrious pastor of Colleyville, Texas’ Covenant Church and his wife, Cyd Texada, had tested positive for COVID-19 earlier in August. While Cyd was recovering well, Pastor Ricky’s condition deteriorated.

Ricky was in the hospital with double pneumonia. According to a recent tweet from Cyd, he had been in the hospital since at least August 10, and the family hadn’t been allowed to see him until recently.

Besides a lasting legacy of goodwill through his work and the congregation, Ricky is survived by his wife Cyd; their sons, Seth and Caleb Texada; his mother, Dorothy Texada; his siblings; and extended family. Cyd and the family are currently grieving and have not responded to the messages on social media.
