Our condolences to Pat and the boys. We were fond of Jack as a fellow teacher at Douglas Freeman High School and enjoyed teaching a few of his sons. Wishing you peace,

You could search this county for years and still not locate as fine a man as Jack Richmond. Jack has been a high school and college football teammate and close friend for over 80 years. We lived one block apart in Highspire, met at age 4, and played sandlot and organized sports together from that time on. Jack was a good athlete and student with a B.S. and M.S. from Virginia Commonwealth University. His integrity, loyalty and dedication to family is matched by very view. May God bless his family at this time of great loss ---Dr. George B. Dintiman, Highspire class of 1954.

Thank you Mr. Dintiman. I always enjoyed hearing his stories about growing up with all of you in Highspire. He always spoke highly of you. We just said yesterday he’s up there fishing with Pepper and Bill today.
