Richard Thomas “Fish” Sebastion, age 44, of Aurora, IL, passed away on Saturday, August 10, 2019. He was born August 4, 1975 to the late Tommie Willie Sebastion and the late Dorothy Jean Embry Sebastion. Richard was a very proud and loving father to Qintarius Anthony Thomas Ratcliffe and stepfather. He is survived by four brothers, Robert L. Embry, Horse Cave, KY, Garry R.

Richard was preceded in death by his wife, parents and grandparents. Richard worked several jobs; enjoyed being around family and friends; and loved traveling, basketball, baseball, drag racing, fishing, and cracking jokes. He had a great heart and was caring, loving. Even though he didn’t attend church often, he was raised, knew, and loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Richard’s laughter and smile will be deeply missed.
