Henry “Rico” J. Nebuloni
June 28, 1920 – February 5, 2019
Rico attended St. James the Greater grade school & CBC high school where he was an award-winning athlete claiming a state championship for the class of 1940. He attended St. Mary’s College prior to enlisting into the Air Force during WW2. Rico was also a skilled private pilot. In 1948, he met & married Kelly, the love of his life. They were married 56 years & is survived by 4 children; Maria (Keith), Georgia, Franceene (Robin), Tina (Keith), 6 grandchildren; Matthew, Anna, Lisa, Eric, Brian, Chaelee, 2 step grandchildren; Alaina, Justine, 3 great grandchildren, 2 step great grandchildren, nieces & nephews. Rico was an accomplished chef who owned several successful restaurants in the St. Louis area. He was a lifetime member of the Elks, Lions & Boys & Girls Clubs.
Always sporting a smile on his face & extending a helping hand for all, Rico will be greatly missed. His greatest accomplishment was his love for his family, friends (old & new) & his love of life. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Creve Coeur Lion’s Club or St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. A special thank you to the caring staff and residents at The Landing of O’Fallon.

I am a nurse who cared for Ricco’s wife Kelly. What a guy! They don’t make them like him anymore. He was part of the greatest generation. He was so devoted to his beloved wife and would tell us stories of their days together in the restaurant business. His daughters were awesome and had such great senses of humor. No mystery where that came from. I believe it was Tina who influenced me to buy a Honda Civic. I am now on my third one. Its saying something, really, that of all the people I have met in my career there are a handful I will never forget and Ricco was definitely one of those special ones. He is with Kelly now sitting under a shade tree with a cool breeze. He was a remarkable man and lived his life with such honor. I am so sorry for your loss.

Rico was the most wonderful man. Kind and welcoming to everyone he met. We at The Landing are missing him and praying he is watching over us with the same love he showed us every day.
