The late Rev. Walter D. Richards, Sr.

Sunrise: August 24, 1931 - Sunset: May 29, 2015

John 14:1-2 (KJV)
"Let not your hearts be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."

It is with profound sadness and heavy but proud hearts that the Richards family announces the peaceful home going of our loving father, husband, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend and dedicated Son of God, Rev. Walter D. Richards, Sr in his eighty-fourth year. His peaceful transition occurred during the morning hours of May 29, 2015 at home in Monrovia, Liberia. We are proud of the life he lived and pray that his soul rests in perfect peace and light everlasting shine upon him.

He leaves to cherish his loving memory his wife, Ora G. Richards, his children Audrey Catherine Richards, Julius Wilfred Richards Sr., Walter David Richards, William Fred Cooper, Ingrid Martha Richards, David Sherman, Walter D. Richards, Jr., Warren Dean Richards and Hadiya Richards; 15 grand children; his sisters Bendu Moore and Louise Richards; nieces, nephews and a host of other family and friends. Rev. Richards was predeceased by his brothers R. Vahnjah Richards and Winston D. Richards.
