Thomas "Tom" Richards was born on January 29, 1950, to Geraldine and Edward Richards in Bath, New York. He spent his childhood growing up with his brother in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. Tom married the love of his life, Janet in November of 1970.
They relocated to Simi Valley, Ca. in the 80's to live the California Dream. Throughout their 51 years together, they raised two children, and three beautiful granddaughters who were the absolute loves of his life.
Tom loved making people laugh, he loved his job at the Port Hueneme Naval Base, going to the beach, taking car rides, and spending time with his family. Tom made his journey home on June 28, 2022, surrounded by the love of his family. He will be forever in our hearts.
