Lewis Richardson

Lewis Richardson, 69, of Salinas, passed away Tuesday, August 20, 2013. He was born April 15, 1944 in Cleveland, Ohio, and in 1970 he headed for San Diego to join the U.S. 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, where 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, Ashley Richardson of Santa Monica; daughter-in-law, Michele Fleury of Santa Monica; 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 p.m., at Community Church of the Monterey Peninsula, 4590 Carmel Valley Road, Carmel, CA 93922.
