Gary L. Richardson of Escondido, Calif., passed away Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013, at the age of 72.
He was born March 31, 1940, in Tiffin, to the late Norwood H. and Cozetta I. Richardson. Gary was raised in Tiffin, but spent most of his life residing in southern California where he proudly worked many years for San Diego Gas & Electric as a lineman and electrician. He was a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers since 1965 beginning with Local No. 309, Collinsville, Ill., and continued his membership with Local No. 569, San Diego (since 1972).
His passion for sailing, motorcycles and traveling provided many adventures throughout his lifetime, which he enjoyed with family and friends.
Gary is survived by his son, Bradford Richardson; two daughters, Babette (Rick) Heileson and Robbin Miranda; his sister, Sue Ann Whaley; and three grandchildren.
Continuing Gary's love for travel and adventure, his ashes will be flown out to sea in Florida and spread over the Gulf Stream so he can continue to sail the seas he so dearly loved.
