Obituaries from Two Days Ago

Richards, Ed  
Ed Richards January 28, 1929 ~ December 19, 2014 Pascagoula, MS Julius Edward "Ed" Richards, age 85, passed away on the night of December 19, 2014. Born on January 28, 1929, the first of 8 children, to Julius Arnold Richards and Ora Irene Linton Richards. He was a lifelong resident of Pascagoula, MS. As a teenager, Ed worked in his father's metal fabrication shop. He graduated from Moss Point High in 1948, and at age 19 he joined the Navy and travelled the world working as an aircraft mechanic. After 4 years, he returned to meet the love of his life, Mary Alice McRae. They married soon after on December 14, 1952. He then began his shipbuilding career at Ingalls and retired after 35 years as boat foreman. During this time, he took a 2-year break from the shipyard and started his own business, Richards' Marine, where he made custom marine supplies for coastal shrimpers, oystermen and fishermen. Throughout his life, Ed was always busy even when he wasn't at his job. He worked on the side making oyster nippers and trawl boards. Being quite adventurous and having a great mind for building, he built a homemade gyrocopter (helicopter on pontoons), boats and a 2-story houseboat. Building and creating useful and unique gadgets was just a talent that came naturally for him. Of course, if the weather and tide allowed, he would fish until the waves chased him in. His love of fishing began as a young boy and continued throughout his life. He was known for his great humor, quick wit and story-telling and was happiest when teasing his wife or playing with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. His greatest legacy, though, was raising a family of five children along with his wife on the waters of Bayou Cumbest. They managed to provide a home with memories full of love, fun, adventure and boating and swimming on the river or at the islands. Most importantly, they led by example and taught their children the importance of family values, hard work and serving the Lord. Ed is survived by his wife of 62 years, Mary Alice, brothers, John "J.A." (Susan) Richards of New Orleans, LA and Thomas "Tommy" (Patti) Richards of Plano, TX; sisters-in-law Jackie Richards of Forney, TX and Polly Richards of Pascagoula; brother-in-law, Edson Clark of Lucedale; children, James Eric (Keigm) Richards of Pascagoula; Lorene Gail (Phil) Bosarge of Pascagoula; Brian Edward (Donna) Richards of Escatawpa; Karen Renae (Mark) Watson of Pascagoula; and Jon Arnold (Takako) Richards of Japan; grandchildren, Leslie (Tim) Donati; Dana (Marshall) Polson; Joseph (Jerusha) Bosarge; Lori (Michael) Miller; Lisa (Ian) Bergin; Ethan, Anna and Britney Richards; Rebecca, Christopher and Will Watson; Sara, Alex and David Richards; and 10 great-granchildren; and many special nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Ed was preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Evelyn Richards Barnes and Elizabeth "Libby" Richards Clark; brothers, Ivan "Billy", Charles and Douglas Richards. Visitation will be held Saturday, December 27, 2014 from 1 - 3 PM at Holder-Wells Funeral Home, Moss Point, MS, with funeral to follow with the Reverend Edward McRae officiating. Interment will be held at Krebs Cemetery, behind the Old Spanish Fort, Pascagoula, MS. In lieu of flowers, donations or memorials may be made to First United Methodist Church of Pascagoula or Four Mile Creek Baptist Church of Escatawpa. Holder-Wells Funeral Home, Moss Point, MS is in charge of arrangements.
