Husband to Offie Mae Hogan/Watson/Isom/Ricou, and the only Grandfather I remember. While he wasn't my biological Grandfather, Grandpa Ricou was MY Grandpa. I remember he used to make things with folded paper, such as with old gum wrappers & cigarette packages. He made things like picture frames and small little boxes to put things in. He ran a business from the house. People would drive up and he would make them a cooler pad from straw for the old swamp coolers. He also collected hubcaps and sold them. If you lost yours or wanted a new collection, go see Leon, he probably had what you are seeking. I believe he once worked for the railroad also. I remember being a little girl and going with him riding the trains.
