On Sunday, September 20, a visitation will be held for Brian Richardson, Sr., beloved fiancé, father, grandfather, brother, father-in-law, uncle, and friend, who passed away on September 8, 2020 at the age of 71. Brian was preceded in death by his mother, Lorraine Richardson and father, Ed Richardson, Sr. He is survived by his fiancée, Tracy Vail; his son, Brian Richardson, Jr.; and his daughter, Julie (Richardson) Mayabb.
Born on November 6, 1948 in St. Louis, Missouri, Brian led a life dedicated to his family and friends. He began his career as a teacher and coach and went on to get a master’s degree at Washington University in St. Louis. He eventually left education and became a successful business owner for nearly three decades.
Outside of work, Brian loved spending time with his family, especially at the Lake of the Ozarks and at holiday gatherings. He was an experienced traveler and had the opportunity to visit many places in the U.S. and abroad. He enjoyed reading and was always ready with a reference to some of his favorite book characters. Brian was an avid sports fan, enjoying hockey, boating, golf and most of all, baseball. He played quarterback in high school and played baseball from grade school through college and was inducted into the Greater St. Louis Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame in 2007, where he was currently serving as treasurer.
Brian was very loved and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Services: Brian’s visitation will take place from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Sunday, September 20, 2020 at Kutis Funeral Home in South County at 5255 Lemay Ferry Road.
