John Thomas Richards

April 7, 2018 — May 14, 2018

Richards, John Thomas (J.T)

April 7, 1944 - May 14, 2018. J.T. was a Vietnam Veteran. He worked at New York Life for 40 years. He was known for his witty sense of humor, love of art and literature, but most of all, his love for his family.

He is survived by daughters, Joey Richards, Patty Erickson, their mother, Lisa Galbreath and son in law, Zach Erickson; granddaughters, Julia and Harper. Also, survived by his mother Patricia Richards; brothers Jaime and Jeff; sisters, Joanie, Jackie and Jill.

Per J.T.’s wishes, we will not be holding a public memorial. To honor his memory, his family will disperse his ashes into the ocean, a place where he always found peace and happiness.
