Reverend Dr. Melvin V. Richardson, sunrise September 4, 1943, sunset December 18, 2017. Consistent with his belief that all men and women share a common human ancestry since creation and thereby are all related by one blood and a common creator, which is God, he elects at this junction of his journey, to not recite numerous relatives and relationships. Save those with his beloved sons, Kenneth V. Richardson, Craig V. Richardson, and Charles K. Whiteous.
