Obituary for John Allen Richey

John Allen Richey was born on December 5, 1922 in Boring, Oregon to Sophie Zogg Richey and John Truman Richey. He was raised on the family dairy farm established by his pioneer ancestors in the 1850’s. He married Virginia Lee Albright in 1942 after volunteering for the army to fight in WWII. He trained as a cadet in the Army Air Force. After the war, he and his wife settled in Portland, Oregon where he worked for over 40 years in electronic businesses, primarily ESI, Omark (now Blount) and Williams Air Control. As an avid photographer, he loved vacationing throughout the Western states along with his wife of over 70 years and daughter. He also enjoyed working in the garden, tending his home orchard and building oak furniture. He is survived by his older sister, Jean Richey Hatch in Minnesota and his daughter, Karen Lee Richey, in McMinnville, Oregon.
