Robert Joseph Richards (RJ); 87, Warren resident, passed away Sunday morning, June 14, 2020, at Fraser Villa Nursing home in Fraser where he was a current patient since February 2020.

Robert was born on February 11, 1933 in Detroit, Michigan, a son of late Herbert and Heloise Richards and was a graduate of Cooley High School. He attended University of Detroit where he received his degree in Engineering. After college, Robert proudly served his country in the United States Coast Guard.

Robert was a devoted husband for 63 years to wife Marilyn who preceded his death on April 14, 2020. Surviving are his children; Danny (Lisa), Lary, Lori, and Dayna. Being the best grandfather in the world, RJ leaves seven grandchildren and three great grandchildren, all of which he adored but not more than how much he is loved by them. Also surviving, Beverly Wolff his loving sister-in-law and niece and nephew Cheryl (Harvey) Kahl and Jeff (Kathy) Wolff. RJ was a hardworking man his entire life providing for his family both with wise advice and a sense of humor that can not be matched. After his service in the Coast Guard, Robert worked for General Motors in the Argonaut division, ran his own electric company in Green River, Wyoming, and returned to Michigan to continue as an electrical contractor until his retirement from Walbridge Aldinger. As an honorary “Yooper” he loved spending his summers at his cottage in Bete Gris, Michigan making the best pasties and thimbleberry jam while overlooking Lake Superior (as RJ would say - “because it is”).
