For the last four years, Ricky Carranceja has been a driver here at GHBC. We all know that he cheerfully drives residents wherever they want to go. At times he takes a single resident to an appointment but, at other times, he drives a bus full of residents. In addition, he is responsible for making sure that all inspections and licenses are up to date and that our vehicles are in working condition. He has also been responsible for scheduling drivers and rides.
Ricky grew up in the Philippines, where he was the only boy with five sisters. Because his father was a military officer the family moved frequently. Ricky earned a bachelors degree in business administration from Trinity College of Quezon City and went to work in personnel at the Experimental Cinema of the Philippines, where his boss was the daughter of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos. That office closed after the Philipine revolution in 1986, and Ricky began working at his own security company but left to come to the United States in 1998. He is now an American citizen. He married Dining Services Supervisor Maribel in 2001, and their daughter Nikki is now almost 16 and looking forward to driving and college. In his spare time, Ricky enjoys spending time with his family and also works out at the gym in their apartment building. The family routinely watches movies together. Ricky enjoys his job here and has no plans to leave Goodwin Living.
