Barry Shelton Richardson, age 66 of Somerset WI, passed away on Saturday, October 4, 2014. Barry was born in Elizabethton, TN to parents Reece C. and Juanita F. (Asher) Richardson. After high school, Barry served in the United States Army.
Upon his honorable discharge from the military, Barry hit the road in what would become a career of over 47 years of truck driving. Barry was an owner/operator who accumulated well over 5 million miles in his time behind the wheel, driving to all of the states in the lower 48. Barry was a family man who enjoyed family trips traveling to Alaska and Hawaii, and numerous other destinations. He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing and golfing. Time spent relaxing on his porch admiring the wonders of nature brought Barry much comfort and peace. Barry will be missed by family and friends alike.
Barry is survived by his loving wife Susan; son, Jamison; daughter, Abigail (Phillip) Andert and their daughter Sierra; sisters, Betty (James) Avery and Sue (Bobby) Buck; brothers, Denver Asher and Luther Richardson, in-laws Nancy Hunter and Tommy Hunter; as well as many special nieces, nephews, and good friends. Barry was preceded in death by a daughter, Anna Michelle; and his parents.
In honoring Barry’s wishes, a private family service will be held. Memorials made in memory of Barry may be directed to the donor’s choice. Service entrusted to the O’Connell Family Funeral Home of Hudson WI.
