Jack E. Richardson 82 of Burton went home to the Lord Sunday September 3, 2023, surrounded by his loving family, and the Lord said, “Well done, good and faithful servant”. He was born September 20, 1940, in Cleveland to the late Oliver T. and Violet M. (Monroe) Richardson. He graduated from Chagrin Falls High School in 1959 and went to work as a letter carrier for Chagrin Falls Post Office where he worked for 45 years. Jack married the love of his life, Alice “Marlene” Thomas on June 10, 1967. He was a member of the Fellowship City Church in Bainbridge. Jack truly lived life to the fullest. He was always present and never missed an opportunity to watch his children or grandchildren in their extracurricular activities. A wave from the stands to always let them know he was there and rooting them on in all they did. Jack loved to make people laugh and was never one to take things too seriously. You could often find him playing with his grandchildren whether it be cards or backyard volleyball. He enjoyed walks and bible study, traveling with his wife and family, hunting, fishing, playing cards, gardening, and even panning for gold. Although he never “struck it rich”, he was blessed beyond measure with a family that loved and adored him.
He will be sadly missed but remembered always by his loving wife of 56 years, Alice “Marlene” Richardson, children, Paul (Rita) Richardson of Auburn, Sheryl (Mike) Downs of Mantua, Katie Badovick of Garrettsville, his grandchildren, Hannah (Andrew) Miura, Emily Richardson, Sarah (Thomas) Benenati, Allison, Kelsey, and Natalie Downs, Ella and Jack Badovick. He will also be missed by his siblings, Les Richardson of Kansas, Judy (Don) Anderson of Chagrin Falls, Ron Richardson of South Russell, Wendy (Elia) Milite of Chesterland, sister and brother in laws, Dixie Richardson of Middlefield, Dale Patterson of Burton, Roy (Jacci) Thomas of Arizona, Mary Lou Wolf of Streetsboro, Laurie (Forrest) McGowan of Burton. Besides his parents he was preceded in death by his brother Harry Richardson, sister-in-law Connie Richardson, brother in law, Dan Patterson, and his In Laws, Roy and Lorraine Thomas.
A Celebration of his life will be held from 2:00-5:00 PM October 14th, at Veterans Legacy Woods (formerly Wicked Woods) 14085 Ravenna Rd, Newbury
