Obituary for Michael Alan Richardson

Michael (Mic) Alan Richardson went from his family's loving arms to the loving arms of Jesus up in Heaven on April 27, 2017 at home in Dayton, Oregon.

He was 65 years old. He was born on September 11, 1951, in Kansas City, Kansas, to parents James and Bertha Richardson.

The family moved to Gooding, Idaho when Mickey was 6 years old. He spent his childhood outdoors and treasured the beauty of nature for the rest of his life. He graduated from Gooding High School in 1970. After spending a number of years in Washington, working as a forest ranger and private contractor building log cabins. In 1979, Mic was visiting a friend in McMinnville, where he met the love of his life, Karen Glass, and never left. Mic and Karen had a son, Scotty, and daughter, Mandy in 1985 and 1987.
Mic was a timber faller for Glass Bros. Incorporated for 10 years. He then worked a variety of other jobs before finding his love for metal sculpting and became an artist for the remainder of his days.

He loved his family with all of his heart and made sure to always express it with lots of hugs and "I love you's". Spending time with his family, especially in the wilderness, was where you'd find him most of the time. If he wasn't outside enjoying nature he would be found in his shop creating art out of recycled metal and an array of other mediums.

5 years ago, Mic was blessed with a grandson, Kingston Richardson. The relationship between the two was nothing short of beautiful. Kingston is proud to let everyone know that, "Papa can fix anything!". The last years of his life were filled with joy watching Kingston grow.

Mic is survived by his wife of 40 years, Karen Richardson; his son, Scotty Richardson; daughter, Mandy Richardson; step-son, James Brandon; grandson, Kingston Richardson; Sister, Dianna Trembly; and brother, Jim Richardson.
