My earliest memory of Uncle Ricard, I was maybe 3 or 4 years old, sitting on his lap behind the wheel of a jeep on a beach and he let me steer, I headed straight for the ocean. I think this would have been in California. When we moved to Wyoming, he was running an ice cream truck he owned with Wanda and they would come by the trailer we lived in to give us some ice cream and check in on us. Spent time shooting guns of course. I am glad I was able to go out at Christmastime in 2018 to see him and other family. He always gave shut great hugs. I will miss him. Kembir Halbur xoxo
