There are no specific details on his dad's passing at the time, but it is believed to have been a sudden passing.
Rico's sister Raini, who is also an actress, shared a message for her dad on Instagram.
You have officially been gone one week daddy and while it has been really difficult, we are all still standing tall and I know it's because you are sending us strength and guidance all the way from heaven. My daddy was the greatest man in my life. His work ethic and sense of humor were two of his greatest characteristics, both of which he shared with me. He has taught me so many life lessons and inspired me constantly to follow my dreams. I know you will continue to shine down on me, momma, Rico, Ray, Poppi and baby and we will be ok! I promise to make you proud daddy. I will love and miss you forever. - Your one and only baby girl
Sending Rico, Raini and their entire family lots of love during this difficult time.
