SALINAS – Lewis Richardson, 69, passed away Tuesday, August 20, 2013. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio on April 15, 1944. In 1970, he headed for San Diego, CA to join the US Navy
as a Dental officer, and see the ocean for the first time.
His love of the central coast led him to lay his roots in Salinas, CA. He nurtured his dental practice from 1972 until present and was an honored member of the ADA and the Monterey Bay Dental Society. He truly loved his work as a dentist, his early morning spin class, Motown music, cooking for his family, the pursuit of a deeper spiritual meaning, and exploring the rugged beauty of the California coastline.
He will be dearly missed by his immediate family: Katherine Richardson of Salinas; his daughters, Jennifer Richardson of Redondo Beach, CA, Ashley Richardson of Santa Monica, CA; daughter in law, Michele Fleury of Santa Monica, CA; and brother Bob Richardson of Vermillion, OH and of course, his beloved patients as well as the dental community at large.
A Celebration of Life will be held, Saturday, September 28, 2013 at 1:00 pm at Community Church of the Monterey Peninsula, 4590 Carmel Valley Road, Carmel, CA 93922.
