Steven Harold Richardson
Steve lost his five-month battle with pancreatic cancer Sunday, November 3rd.
There was not a day that went by where he didn’t make more than a few fortunate people around him laugh. He was unique and loved.
His greatest joys in life were his children and grandchildren.
Steve had a passion for helping those in need and his hard work and determination were seen and admired by all who knew him.
He spent the last years of his life traveling with his beloved puppy, Charlie.
Steve will be remembered for his humor, love, compassion, generosity, commitments and so many other attributes, but the best was how he could make a person feel important, valued and loved.
He is survived by his daughter, Amber, his son Tyler and their mother Verlinda. Tyler’s wife Celeste and their children Kylie, Isaac and Cyrus. His brothers Michael and Robert, and many loved nieces, nephews, cousins, and other family members. He was especially blessed by Verlinda’s sister, Paulette, for her help and support.
As per his wishes, there will be No Service.
In lieu of flowers, Amber and Tyler have asked that a donation be made in his honor to the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission, 535 E. Yanonali St., Santa Barbara, CA 93103.
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord Forever, for in YAH the Lord is everlasting strength”. Isaiah 26:3-4 NKJV
