George was born to loving parents George Henry Richardson and Blanche Mair on Dec. 31, 1926, in Park City. He married Anita Broadhead on June 1, 1947, in Heber City, they were blessed with two children Keith Allen Richardson and Vickie Anita Richardson Davis. Junior and Anita spent 64 years making wonderful memories together. Some of these memories include camping, getting fire wood, family vacations, enjoying time with grandkids and most importantly spending time together. George served in the US Navy from 1944-1946 and 1950-1951 serving in World War II and the Korean War. George had many jobs including working in the Park City mines, building construction and Wasatch County Public Works. He really enjoyed carpentry work, everyone knew him as the handyman that could fix anything, most of all he really liked serving others, he would leave some of them in tears after helping and taking nothing in return. He liked tools and had a lot, he would lend them out to anyone in need. It made him feel good to help anyway he could. He really enjoyed work and did not look forward to the weekends. George was a great example to many, especially his grandchildren. He will be greatly missed.
