Ricky Keith Entrican, 67 of Paris, passed away peacefully Wednesday, July 29, 2021, at the Roudebush VA hospital in Indianapolis, Ind., surrounded by his family. 

A funeral service is 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 3, at Templeton Funeral Home. Military honors by American Legion Post 211 and the United States Marine Corps accompany burial in Edgar Cemetery. Visitation is from noon until the service time Tuesday at the funeral home.

Mr. Entrican was born Dec. 5, 1953, the son of the late Paul and Bernice Entrican in Paris. He married the love of his life Billie Entrican, and she survives.

He is also survived by their two daughters and spouses Debbie (Joe) Grove and Jennifer (Robert) Green Jr.; four grandchildren, Jalen and Jasmine Entrican and Haylee and Hannah Grove; six siblings, Cathy, Tim, Bethany, Gloria, Diana and Jeff; and several nieces and nephews. 

He was preceded in death by one brother, Paul Entrican Jr.; and nephew, Christopher Jordan. 

Mr. Entrican spent his childhood in Paris until he became a member of the U.S. Marine Corp.  That was the beginning of a whirlwind life that took him from North Carolina all the way to California, stopping at fabulous places along the way. 

After the Marine Corp, he spent his life perfecting the art of culinary deliciousness, starring as the sous chef for many high-scale restaurants like Houilihan’s and McCormick and Schmick. After his whirlwind slowed a bit, he settled in Indianapolis with his family.  This was the start of different kinds of adventures. From playing restaurant with the granddaughters and allowing the grandson to watch things like Power Rangers that were deemed totally inappropriate by his parents, to being a sounding board for grown daughters to sailing the high seas with the love of his life. 

Everything he did, he did at 100%. He will be missed by many but will continue to watch over us all from his magnificent viewpoint. 

Memorial donations may be made to Riley Hospital For Children in Indianapolis.
