Gerald 'JR' Eugene Richardson, 75, of Crivitz, passed away Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2018 with family by his side.
Born in Sheboygan, to Maynard and Gennevieve Richardson, he enlisted in the United States Air Force at the age of 16 and served on the flight lines at Scott Air Force Base. In 1994, he married his best friend, Jeanne Koenig.
A creative spirit, he built grille guards, designed intarsia and groomed dogs. As a Sheboygan County highway worker, he ruled the snowplow and was a semi driver, traveling the country. He was an avid outdoorsman and won many trophies in archery and rifle tournaments.
Survivors include his wife, Jeanne; three brothers-in-law and three sisters-in-law, Darryl (Barb) Koenig, David (Julie) Koenig and Sharon (Al) Lambert and many nieces and nephews.
Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his in-laws, Norbert and Florence Koenig and a brother-in-law, Robert Koenig.
He was an active member of the Cornerstone Assembly of God in Athlestane, where a Memorial Service will be held in March.
