Carl L. Richardson, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather, passed away at his home in Plain Grove Township, Lawrence County on June 23, 2022 following a long journey with dementia.

Born Nov. 2, 1932 to Blaine and Gladys Richardson, Carl grew up in the small town of Elderton, PA along with his sister, Nancy Richardson Rupert. He served in the U.S. Navy as a Fire Control Technician from 1955 to 1957. Carl married Carol A. Jack in 1959 and later Mary Brzezicki in 1983. He worked forty years as an electronic technician for Magnetics/Spang in East Butler, PA until his retirement in 1994.

Carl will always be remembered by his family for his deep connection to the outdoors. An avid deer hunter and steward of the land, he would often be seen in a wide-brimmed hat and long-sleeved button up shirt working on his many projects. His grandkids have their memories of boat rides on the lakes and seeing the fish with grandpa drawn to the fish food he'd throw out to the clusters of bass, crappie, bluegill, and occasional carp. Gardening and growing was also a passion. He kept a large vegetable garden and a beautiful orchard alongside his wife Mary and planted thousands of trees with his children that now thickly cover the land.

Most importantly Carl will be remembered for his wisdom and guidance. He could always be counted on night or day to offer some good advice or to simply lend an ear. He found great comfort in his later life studying the bible and enjoyed the fellowship as an active member of the Plain Grove Presbyterian Church. Though in the end his memory was weak, his strength will live on to inspire his family. While his spirit has moved on, his memory will live on in the trees that hug the banks of the lakes.

Carl is survived by his wife, Mary B. Richardson, children: Kathleen Richardson, Diane Richardson, and Jay Richardson all of Volant, PA., stepson Michael Brzezicki, stepdaughter Suzanne Fields, grandchildren: Parker Maynard, Stephanie Sale, Jacob Richardson, David Shields, Diana Shields, Daniel Shields, Dana Shields, Athena Fowler, Anna Heasley, Faith Richardson, Scott Fields, and Vickie Guzan as well as five great grandchildren.

Carl will be interred at Morningside Cemetery in DuBois; PA and a memorial service is planned for late summer.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations in Carl's memory to the Plain Grove Presbyterian Church, 626 Plain Grove Road, Slippery Rock, PA 16057, (724) 530-2144, plaingrovechurch@gmail.com.
