He miraculously progressed out of it with full cognition while left with limited mobility. Physical complications did not stop his contentment with life, his humor, nor his spirit. He was known to friends and family as a prayer warrior and will be missed by all who know him. He is preceded in death by his Father, Charles D. Richardson and survived by his mother, Jeni Gumm, stepfather, Richard Gumm, Sister/ brother in law, Denette & Geoffrey Will, Nephews Cody & Jared Will, Great Nephew, Weston Will, Aunts, Uncles & Cousins.
