Ronald L. Richardson Obituary
RONALD L. RICHARDSON Age 77, of Riverside, died Saturday, September 15. Ron was the eldest child of Mildred Smith Richardson and Roland Richardson of Fairfield, Maine. He moved to Pomona, California in 1947 where he could be seen riding his horse through the hills surrounding the now 71 freeway. He graduated from Pomona High School and then enlisted in the Army serving in Germany in the mid 1950s. He returned to California to marry his high school sweetheart, Lorraine Devore. In his adult life he was an entrepreneur, building several trucking companies, operating several warehouses and working for a number of years in the real estate industry. Ron was known for his commitment to his employees, his tenacious quest for success, and his joy for a trick well played. He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Lorraine Richardson; children Timothy and Cynthia McKay Richardson, Victoria Richardson, Robert and Frances Richardson Barnes; grandchildren Zachary Richardson, Magdalen Richardson and Victor Rocha, Jillian Richardson, and Nicholas Richardson; and sisters Patricia Lane and Judy Richardson.

The interment of his ashes will be at noon on Monday, October 1 at Our Lady Queen of Peace Cemetery, Colton.
