August 17, 1956 - March 23, 2022
Richard “Ric” Halbrook passed away at his home on Wednesday, March 23, 2022. Ric was born on August 17, 1956 in Pomona, California to Rich and Joann Halbrook. Ric graduated from West Covina High School in 1974 and shortly after that, the family moved to the Houston area, where Ric and his dad worked for Six Flags Astroworld. Ric was an incredibly talented electrician and spent time with Astroworld as their Animation Specialist, bringing joy to many with his creations.
Shortly after, Ric met the love of his life, Cathie Mae, and they married in 1981. The family settled in Humble, Texas and became an integral part of the community.
Ric is preceded in death by his parents, Rich and Joann.
Ric is survived by his loving wife, Cathie and their three children: Meredith Hayes (husband, Jason), Ricci Halbrook (wife, Trish), and Ryan Halbrook (wife, Meghan.) He is also survived by 6 grandchildren: Jacob Hayes, Sydney Halbrook, Jonas Halbrook, Sullivan Halbrook, Oliver Halbrook, and Arthur Halbrook. He is also survived by his devoted sister, Pam Coen (husband, Tim.)
In addition, he is survived by many nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
Ric was well-known and well-loved in his community. From the time his children were small, Ric spent most of his spare time coaching little league teams, was a Scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts of America, and countless other activities where his kids were involved.
After his kids were grown, he became a valuable member of the Humble ISD Rodeo & BBQ Cookoff Committee, and it was his absolute passion. Ric provided years of service to the children of Humble ISD and the greater Humble Community through his efforts with the committee.
There will be a Celebration of Life for Ric at a family home on April 2, 2022.
