To Cricketman, Donna and the entire Richardson Family:

Our deepest and heartfelt sympathies on the loss of your "Pops"

Appropriately, the colour of the fancy "blue drinks" matches the sky of a beautiful summer day and when we are all enjoying one of those days We'll look up and know you'll be enjoying them too as you'll be raising a glass of "blue".

Here's a toast to you "Pops"

It was my great pleasure to work with Peter at Belmont Secondary School, Sooke District. My most sincere condolences to his family. He was a fine teacher who appealed to students who really wanted to learn and who appreciated his comprehensive knowledge. His wit and sardonic humor for me, lighted sometimes trying situations.

I will be forever grateful to Mr Richardson for his kindness, encouragement and support while he was my grade 8 teacher. He called me his "Jasmine Flower". When life was bleak and hopeless, going to his class, being encouraged and learning beautiful poetry and writing journal entries, gave me hope and belief in myself. It was a great joy to visit him and his lovely wife Shirley a couple summers ago in Victoria. My heart goes out to the entire family. Know that he was loved and appreciated and made a difference in the world. Forever thankful: Sharon Crawford (Trimble)

A former teacher of mine at Spencer School in Langford. Peter, (Mr. Richardson) was as much a mentor as an educator. In so doing, he left a lasting, positive impression and influence on many young people who have gone on to do many great things in this world. Thank you sir! Enjoy that big cricket pitch in the sky!

We first met Peter on one of our visits to my brother Ross and family in Victoria during the eighties and the last time in our visit in 2011. Ross regarded Peter as a top bloke and a bit of a larrikin. He certainly didn't disappoint. He was a very likable character ,though cheeky but also very intelligent , funny and mischievous all in one. He loved his cricket but unfortunately barracked for the wrong team (and I don't mean the Australians) I am sure he is going to be sadly missed by all and Michelle and I would like to pass on our sincere sympathies to Peters family ....Gary and Michelle king

Always the best comments on a marked paper, great teacher. Didn't suffer fools, and that may have been the best lesson handed down. Rest in peace, Rocket Richardson. One of the good guys for sure.

Mr Richardson was my grade 8 English teacher at Spencer in the late 70's. I always enjoyed his teaching. Two particular memories stand out. He wrote in my report card, "Bless her little cotton socks!" It was an expression I had never heard before, so I didn't quite know how to take it! He also read Orwell's 1984 aloud to the class, which was a very effective way to deliver it - even though the class thought we were far too grown-up to be read to! For the final chapters, he brought in a record, and I am still haunted by the voices in the dramatic reading. My sincere sympathies to the Richardson family for your loss.

Feeth loved to have fun, and it was evident how much Sue and Ray loved their father, hugs to everyone, the thought of him brings a smile to my face.
