Leonard L. Richards
Leonard L. Richards left us on May 17, 2013 at the age of 100 years, 8 months and 15 days. He was born in a snowstorm on September 2, 1912, but his birth certificate was recorded as September 12th. His sense of humor was he had 200 birthdays, as he celebrated on both dates.
He never married but Pearl Hinze was his loyal lady for 65 years. He left 3 nephews; Thomas Martin of Saltwater Park, Larry Richards of Port Townsend, Bill Richards of Bellevue and a niece, Jean Richards Timmermeister of Spokane, sister-in-law Justine Richards of Des Moines, best friend Mickey McDermott of Bellevue, John, Angelica, Martha, Maya, Maddy and CJ from Whisper Creek Adult Home who gave him their loving care and attention so gracefully.
Len served his country as an Army E-3 nurse’s assistant in a shell shock ward in Utah from 1943 to 1946. He graduated in the first 4 year class of Cleveland High School in 1931. He worked at Bascom Wire Rope in Georgetown.
