DANIEL EUGENE RICHARDSON JR.

“Rusty” Daniel Eugene Richardson Jr., a devoted father, brother, son and friend, died unexpectedly on October 7, 2017 at the age of 40, at his home in Sumner. Rusty was a long-time resident of the Federal Way area.

Rusty is survived by his parents; his brother, Dustin Richardson; his daughters, Morgan and Caylee Richardson; his former wife Kimberly Jones; and his grandparents, Ted and Barbara Jahns. He is preceded in death by his brother, Alan Jayne; his aunt Theresa Richardson; his grandmother, Phyllis Childers; his grandfather, Doug Richardson; and his great-grandmother, Louise Roper.

Rusty was born in Austin Texas on March 30, 1977, to Daniel Eugene Richardson and Carol Marie Richardson (Jahns). In 1979, Rusty, his parents, and his new baby brother, moved to Federal Way. He grew up attending St Luke’s Lutheran Church, graduated from Federal Way High School in 1995, and went on to play soccer at Highline College from 1996-1997.

Rusty left his career as a loan officer and other positions in the Mortgage industry to be a stay-at-home father, and was days away from beginning a new career at Amazon. He maintained a lifelong love of soccer, baseball, football and basketball. Rusty was a loving son, brother, grandson, nephew and friend; and a dedicated, proud, and loving father. Rusty’s girls were his world. Rusty will be deeply missed by his many friends and family, and everyone whose life he touched.

A celebration of life is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on October 20 at the Center at Norpoint 4818 Nassau Avenue Northeast Tacoma, WA 98422.

Any flowers or cards may be sent to Rusty’s parents Daniel and Carol Richardson at 6139 Hawthorne Place, Maple Falls, WA 98266
