I still laugh when I remember Sgt. Picard holding impromptu hallway inspections and geography quizzes of rookies...I have never forgotten the Capitol of Thailand! God Bless and keep you Captain.

RIP my friend. You were the first one to tell me and my husband hello and tell us where we could find coffee that early October morning when we first arrived. We had many talks over the years, always appreciated your friendship.

I remember Howard fondly. My husband and I moved into the house in Galveston in 1978. It was across the street from the Picard’s house. I was about 6 months pregnant with our first child. My husband, Jim, was a harbor pilot and worked a lot at nights. I was a little frightened in this neighborhood. On the second night as I was unloading boxes I heard a loud knock on the door. Looking out the window I saw a muscled bald man. As I opened the door Howard said “don’t be frightened I live across the street and I am a policeman.” He said if you ever need anything call me. Howard was that kind of man. Good, honest and always there to help. He made the world a better place. He will be missed! Jim & Bev Coonrod

Peter Picard left a message on March 29, 2018:
I remember the first time meeting my Great Uncle Howard during a family summer vacation to Galveston with my Aunt Barbara and Father Phillip when I was 8 or 9 years old. He definitely made an impression, as I remember many under cover police stories he told, some funny jokes, and my first ever crawfish broil. He was very much a family man also dedicated to his community. His call to service in many different ways, played a part in helping me decide to join the U.S. Navy. He will be missed Greatly by all of his family in the Pacific Northwest. Sending Love and Prayers on behalf of his Brother J.P. and Wife Lois, also his Nephew Phillip, and myself, his Great Nephew Peter. May you be at peace Great Uncle.
