John C. Richardson, Jr.

John Clarence “Moe” Richardson Jr., 81, a lifelong resident of Williamsburg, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on December 19, 2021.  Throughout his life, Moe was an avid baseball player and a sports enthusiast. Moe attended James Blair High School prior to attending Wake Forest University. He then graduated from Mars Hill College with a degree in Business. After college, Moe worked various jobs before following in his father’s footsteps and working in the fur business.  Moe always valued his many friends and relatives in the Williamsburg community as well as his time spent coaching in the youth baseball league for many years. His greatest loves in life were cooking for and spending time with his five grandchildren as well as time spent with his wife Judy to whom he said his last words ”I love you too…”  Whether as a husband, dad or grandad, Moe will be forever missed by his family. Moe was preceded in death by his parents, John Clarence Richardson Sr. and Lorraine Haynes Richardson, as well as his sister, Patricia Ann Richardson. Moe is survived by his wife, Judy Richardson of 52 years; his two sons, John Coleman Richardson and his wife Jessica, and David Thomas Richardson and his wife Meghan; his five grandchildren, Caroline Tyler Richardson, John Carter Richardson, Lily Maureen Richardson, Ryan Thomas Richardson, and Drew Michael Richardson; and his siblings, Sandra Lee Wells and her husband Wesley, and Bennett Coleman Richardson and his wife Janet. Bucktrout of Williamsburg will be coordinating all arrangements beginning with a viewing on Monday, December 27th from 5-7 P.M.

    iI am heart broken, grew up with him, always had a smile on his face and was very kind and good to my mom and dad. I am glad my father went before him, this would have torn him up as it has me. Wow, no longer will I be standing in the yard and he stops by or yells at me from his car "hey Debbie" I am very, very sad. Lost a childhood icon and the Mayor of Magruder Lane. Debbie Johnson

    We are saddened to hear of Moe’s passing. He was a wonderful neighbor, always willing to lend a helping hand when needed. He also was the eyes and ears of the neighborhood, and a friend to all. He will be truly missed.

    “Uncle Moe” was my second dad as I grew up. He was my dad’s best friend and his best man in Mom and Dad’s wedding. He always asked my parents, “How are my kids?” We adored his crazy sense of humor and sincere heart. He gave more than he ever took and made people feel special and important. He was ALWAYS positive and loving and a very creative person who was the drummer for his own path. He will be missed greatly for the sparkle he was to this world. When it comes to Moe Richardson God broke the mold! Love ya, Uncle Moe and will see you in Heaven later! Hold down the fort for me! Keep them laughing up There! Love forever, your “daughter”, Jenni
