Donald "Banker" Richardson passed away suddenly in his home on Sunday, November 24, 2019, in his 68th year.
Husband to Dianne Richardson (Ridley). Cherished father to Jennifer Richardson (Amos Drohan) and Jason Richardson (Loni Hugill). Beloved Papa to Datson, Aaliyah and Estella Richardson, Taylor and James Vanderburgh and Grand-dog Riley.
The dear brother to Barb (Richardson), Terry Probyn, uncle of Mike, David, and great uncle to Keirra. Don will be missed by many extended family members, friends and neighbours. Don is predeceased by his parents Charles and Jean (Aldrich) Richardson.
Don was a man of many trades and hobbies including his time on the Northville Fire Department. He was always there for friends and family whenever needed with no questions asked. Don dedicated his life to friends and family but the centre of his world was his grandchildren. He spent his time in arenas, soccer fields, football games, hanging out in the backyard or getting them off to school each morning. They truly were the loves of his life.

Dr. Christine O'Reilly officiating. A reception will follow at the Forest Legion where friends and family are welcomed to join together to share memories.
