I hate losing a solid professional comic book artist. They're an extinct beast in current society as it is, but at least you know they're still out there, still as talented as they ever were. Hoping, waiting, someday some comic book publisher will look around and say, "Man, Ric Estrada is still alive and ready to work. Sal Buscema, too. George Tuska. Nobody is using them and paying them what they're worth. That's what we'll do: bring back solid professional comics by solid professionals!"
Well, in this case, it's too late. Ric Estrada leaves behind a legacy of great work and assuredly a lot of family and friends who loved him. RIP.
