William R. Richardson, 58, of East Coventry, passed away Thursday April 23, 2020 at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.
Born in Chambersburg, PA he was the son of William Charles Richardson and the late Elaine Gail (Arndt) Richardson.
Early in his life, Bill developed a love for the outdoors. He would camp by creeks, trap muskrats and rabbits, and train his beloved dogs to point at the sight and smell of small game. Bill appreciated all types of hunting and lived for deer and turkey season. Fishing in both salt and freshwater was a great passion of his. He enjoyed spending the hunting seasons with extended family and friends at the family hunting camp. Bill also owned his own hunting camp which he enjoyed having friends and family come to for over 20 years. He enjoyed sharing his passion of hunting, fishing and the outdoors with others. Later in life, Bill also took up an interest in riding his motorcycle. He was an employee of Cerner (previously SMS, then Siemens) for over 35 years. At the age of 56 he received the gift of life through a life-saving heart transplant at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital after waiting inpatient in the CVICU for four months. He enjoyed going back to visit his nurses and healthcare team up until his passing.
Surviving along with his father are his two children Kelsey Richardson and Luke Richardson; one brother Robert Richardson (Christie); one sister Jennifer Richardson (Bruce Burdsall); nephews Rory Richardson and Cameron Evans; nieces Kyra and Karlie Evans; along with several aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Funeral services will be pushed to a later date, to be determined.
