Paul S. Richards Jr. Obituary
Paul S. Richards Jr
Son, husband, father, friend, Buckeye

On Tuesday, May 14th, 2019, Paul S. Richards Jr, loving husband, brother, and father, passed away from cancer complications at the age of 71.

Paul was born on May 11th, 1948 in Ithaca, NY to Paul S. Richards Sr. and Josephine (Casano) Richards. He received his bachelor's degree from THE Ohio State University in 1971 and went on to work in the Insurance industry for 40 years at Home Insurance, AIG, Marsh & McLennan, and John Hancock. He married Maureen A. Richards (McCarthy) on October 27th, 1973. They raised a son, Paul S. Richards III.

Paul had a passion for golf, Ohio State football, collegiate wrestling, fixing up the yard, and working in Boston. He was very involved in Pepperell Little League throughout his son's childhood. He recently became active at PACH, a volunteer-staffed community outreach program in Pepperell. He was well known for his humor, his friendship, and his thoughtfulness. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father, and friend. He will be thought of every day, but especially on cold days in November when Ohio State plays Michigan.

Paul was preceded in death by his father Paul Sr., and his mother, Josephine. He is survived by his sister Bonnie Gestwicki (Richards), wife Maureen, his son Paul, two nieces Jennifer Romo (McCarthy), Elizabeth Dings (McCarthy), daughter-in-law Brittany Schermerhorn, and two loving brother-in-laws, Thomas V. McCarthy Jr. and Ralph Gestwicki.
