Hector Federico Diaz, known by his nickname Rico, is an assistant at the Fisher & Sons Funeral Home.
He first met the Fisher family when he visited their funeral home and showed off his knowledge of corpses. Impressed with his knowledge they offered him a position as a restorative artist but he later left to pursue other venues before returning to work with them. At one stage the family decided to form a business partnership with him.
He married his high school sweetheart Vanessa Diaz and they had two sons Julio and Augusto. However, they separated temporarily when she learned of his affair with an exotic dancer but reunited and remained together until his death in 2049.
