Obituary of Charles Richardson

Richardson: Charles Elliott -

A resident of Thamesville, Charles Richardson passed away at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance - Chatham Campus on April 10, 2024 at the age of 89.

Born in Chatham, Charles was the son of the late Charles and Elizabeth (née McPhail) Richardson.

Predeceased by sisters Mary McFadden, Jane Sinclair and Annie White.

Chuck will also be dearly missed by his sister-in-law Dianne Barnier (late Doug) along with many nieces and nephews.

Chuck was raised on the family farm in Turin. Along with his mother and sister's, they kept the farm going and then Chuck spent many years driving Transport. After his retirement he found personal joy in driving for Caring Helping Assisting People (CHAPS).

A special thank-you is extended to the Doctors and Nurses on 4th Floor B Medicine and the ICU at Chatham-Kent Health Alliance.
