Barry L. Rickard, age 43, of Pequot Lakes, went to be with his beloved grandmother, Jean Brown, on February 6, 2020, at Essentia St. Joseph’s Medical Center, Brainerd. He was surrounded by family and friends. He was born September 16, 1976, in Brainerd.
Barry’s smile and quick wit will truly be missed by those he leaves behind: his partner in life and shenanigans, Pam Morrison; mother, Linda Armstrong; children, Mackenzie Rickard and Dawson Rickard and their mother, Wendy; siblings: Bob Rickard, Bill Rickard, Brian Rickard, Michelle Rickard, Cindy Tulenchik, Mike Armstrong, Tracey Godfrey, Lindsey Wickam; stepmother, Kelly Tulenchik; many nieces, nephews and friends. He was preceded in death by all his grandparents; father, Tex Rickard; stepfather, John Armstrong; dog, Maggie; and favorite country singer, George Jones.
There will be no funeral service. Sticking with Barry’s love of country music – as he would say – just prop me up against the jukebox when I die, and when I get where I’m going don’t cry for me down here. There will be a “last call” for Barry on Saturday, February 22 beginning at 1 PM at the Pub in Pequot Lakes.
