Richard Anthony Covert, 42, of Lonoke passed away Tuesday, December 13, 2022. He was born on May 31, 1980 in Little Rock, Arkansas to Pam McCain and Richard Covert. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Martha and Ralph Piety; paternal grandfather, Leroy Covert; paternal grandmother, Rose Anne Harper; aunt, Karen Ziemer; and uncle, Marty Piety. He is survived by fiancé, Amanda Lacy (Lonoke); son, Triton Covert; parents, Pam McCain (Lonoke) and Richard Covert (Benton); sister, Courtney Covert (Australia); aunts Karen Piety (Lonoke), Teresa Piety (Lonoke), Tammy Woods (Lonoke), and Robin Arredonndo (Lonoke); and cousin, Elexas Bradford (Lonoke). He also had many cousins and aunts who loved him dearly.
Richie’s first love was Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and nothing could top that. He was an entrepreneur of sorts. He had a love for anything camo and fast. He was a risk taker and wasn’t scared of much. Only a few got to see and truly understand how big of a heart he had. He made an impact on everyone he came into contact with.
We will miss him more than he could ever imagine. Although he was a “go big or go home” type of person, he didn’t want anything elaborate after his passing. His wishes are being respected and there will be a memorial service held at 6:30 pm, Thursday, December 22, 2022 at Panola Missionary Baptist Church, 972 South Kerr Road, Lonoke, AR 72086.
