Frederick "Hank ""Scarecrow" Richardson - Class Of 1966 VIEW PROFILE

As reported to me by Paul Breitkruz ('66) and Hank Richardson’s obit that Frederick “Hank” ”Scarecrow” Bryan Richardson, Passed March 20, 2015. He was born at March AFB June 3, 1948 to Dorothy & Frederick Richardson.

Survived by Susan Richardson (wife of 46 years,) daughters Leslie and Allison (Grant.) His Mother, Dorothy, Brother John; 3-grandchildren Mara, Avery, Harper; and nephews, Josh, Brian, David, Brice and Christian. A memorial service will be held 10 AM, March 28, at Eternal Hills Memorial Park, 1999 El Camino Real, Oceanside, 92054. A request from the family, in lieu of sending flowers please make donations to your favorite animal shelter in his name.

Hank has come home to the 'Halls of Valhalla' to walk with the many Vikings who proceeded him, back to a time when the sun was warm on our backs and a time of our youths, a time of innocence (well maybe not all that innocent...)  But when we ran the hills  with our parties and teenage fun. a time of sandlot ball.

Hank will be missed but not forgotten I am sure. So take the time and leave him a sentiment of how you knew him.

My thoughts and prayers are with Sue and the entire Richardson family. I knew Hank my entire childhood.  Hank and Gary Burke along with Dick Cahoe were best of buds for so many years.  I love the memories! Let us not forget how short this life can be.  Let's live it with all the integrity and character that we can. It sounds like Hank certainly did.

  As I look back at his high school picture, yes I certainly do remember Hank. I am sadden to hear of one of our classmates leaving us so early in life. I send my love to his family. 

Sincerely, Jean Wyatt-Sullivan

So sorry and sad to hear of Hanks passing. Living just south of Oceanside in Carlsbad, had I known sooner I would have attended his service. My heart goes out to Sue, their children and the entire family. Hank was a great guy and will be missed I'm sure. RIP Hank.

When I heard of Hank;s passing it made my heart feel heavy and I am sadden by the loss of him.  During Junior High and High School we spent a lot of time running around and attending parties and in general just good, cleat fun. He will be missed.

Sock and saddness our the first things to come to mind and then the memories. Hank and I were both paper boys for the Press Enterprise and we both won a trip to Disneyland, you say not a big thing, but we left Riverside on a helicopter and landed in the parking lot of the park. We didn't talk much because you couldn't hear, we just smiled. The next thing we are in high school and Hank is driving a little VW convertable, way to cool. For a tall guy, he always looked like a low rider. Hank was alway a nice person and low key. A great example, He will be missed. My prayer is for the the family and friends left behind, may the Lord watch over each and every one of them.
