To the entire RICKARD family, Kathy and I offer our heartfelt prayers. Saw him alot at AK he was on the narrow gauge and brought coils into my Dept. Don't think I ever got 5 words out of him when I talked to him. He was a very humble and good man. May Gods grace and mercy be with him. And may God's loving arms hold each and everyone of you in this time of great sorrow. Chuck and Kathy Purvis

“Don’t buy gas from anywhere besides Shell and Marathon” he told me when I first started driving.
I remember thinking he was mean when I was a kid because he wouldn’t let us walk on the front yard… now, I STRIVE for that kind of yard!

He was a man that didn’t say anything but said a LOT just by being there. He was the true Definition of a “‘man”… even bad the flannels yo prove it! 💕💕
