Jack Clarence Richardson

Jack Clarence Richardson entered into eternal peace on January 25, 2015 after courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.

He was born in Milo, Maine on April 23, 1950 the son of the late Clarence and Rose (Cyr) Richardson. However he was a resident of Bristol for most of his life and was a 1970 graduate from Bristol Eastern High School.

Jack was an independent long-haul trucker and made many friends in different states, all over the country. He frequently entertained friends with the interesting and colorful stories of his travels.

He was also a skilled heavy equipment mechanic and was very handy spending the last several years remodeling his home.

Jack enjoyed billiards, playing cards and was an old Western movie buff, and friends truly enjoyed his wonderful sense of humor.

Jack is survived by Grace, his fiancée and caregiver, his daughter, Cheryl, Matthew, Jamie and Isabella his three grandchildren, who he adored. He is also survived by his sisters, Mary Verhoeven of Colorado, and Linda Nencheck of New Jersey, along with several nieces and nephews.

A special thanks to Ed, Rick and Sarah for their friendship and support shown to Jack during his most difficult time. Their weekly visits perked him up and he loved their company. Also, a special thanks to Dr. Nadeem Behjet and his staff for their exceptional care and compassion shown to Jack in his final days.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at 10 AM at the Peacedale Cemetery 155 James P Casey Rd., Bristol. Dunn Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements

Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one.  In the Bible, a man named Job raised the question: If an able-bodied man dies can he live again? Then he answered: I shall wait [in the grave] until my relief comes. [God] will call, and I myself shall answer. (Job 14:14, 15) What a joy it will be when that time arrives and the dead are reunited with their loved ones!  May God give you strengh now and in the future as you cope with the death of your precious child.
