|Let the memory of George be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, George Richards, 71, born on September 11, 1944 and passed away on January 6, 2016. We will remember him forever.
In accordance with Dad's final wishes, we will not be holding a service publicly. We have set up the website below so that friends and family can remember him. Feel free to leave a note, post a memory, or photos to share with all.
We especially do not want to lose touch with those of you that Dad has kept up with, but that we might not have seen in years. So, please keep in touch with us and feel free to share a story or two.
Gordon and Brad
"I had the opportunity to work with George for the past 5-6 years now and he was one of my favorite clients to talk to. We probably spoke a few dozen times over the years and he always seemed pleasant and we'd carry on a bit past the normal business talk. I wish I had gotten a chance to meet him in person but I would like to thank his family for putting the photos on this page. This way I get to see who I enjoyed those conversations with these past few years. While I wasn't family or a good friend of his, I do still think about him all the time. I'll miss those chats with you George."
"The Many Faces of George
BEAUTY and GEORGE It was pre-kindergarten for cousin George and he failed the required eye test. My mother was aghast that a boy should have such long luscious thick eye lashes. So beautiful! So Gram and Aunt Grace had to trim them so they wouldn't twitch on the eyeglasses. He turned into a very handsome man!
SMART ASS BUSNIESS MAN In Ecuador at Belen and Steve's wedding 2 years ago, George was having a very good time, a little too good of time. Guests were concerned for his health and decided to give him a sobriety test. Question: How much is 2 plus 2? George: What do you want it to be? That was proof enough for most of his sobriety. His business and accounting background shined through! HATED BY ALL WOMAN When faced with the health issue of diabetes, George simply switched from Diet Coke to regular Coke, And he lost enough weight to be svelt and healthy. BEER CONNESIUR We all know he loved his beers, but how about his need to collect beer coasters for his brother, Larry. SUSHI LOVER Enough said. POLITICAL SNARK We all know he loved politics and attended an extended political conference with his brother Dennis in Boulder last winter. But when the phone rang at his home and it was a pollster, George would decide that he was anything but a white protestant male. Perhaps a Buddhist? A female native American? Never trust poll results. ALWAYS THE GENTLEMAN Colleen was his one of a kind love and she was a lover of fun, and loved color. She was the owner of a bright pink umbrella that resided in George's Honda. At my house, it was pouring and George was running an errand with Belen. She hesitated to get out of the car and George magically produced the "pink umbrella". Heaven forbid, a lady would go without anything with my cousin George around. GREAT GUY... Will be missed by many. But we all have our personal GEORGE memories. Cousin Priscilla Aitken"
