Obituary for John W. Richard

John worked for the State of Wisconsin until he retired in 2002. He loved traveling, and visited Europe and Canada along with all 50 states stopping at National and State parks along the way.

John is survived by his sisters, Marty (Stephen) Meek, Carol Richard (Fred Berg) and Laura (David) Thomson; along with his much loved nieces and nephews and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Henry Richard; and sister, Anna Dary.
