Jim Richardson left a message on September 24, 2022:
Jim was a close friend since teenage years in Washington. For months we would get together Friday night at his house down the street and make Boyardee pizzas and watch The Twilight Zone. We were so alike in tastes and interests and did many many things together as couples with our wives later on, when we lived next door to each other. We even bought motorcycles alike. Jim was constantly always good to be with. He was never extreme in anything and no bad bones in him. I never heard anyone say anything negative about him and I doubt they could. He was easygoing and had sound judgment about things. Genuine. I emailed him last year how he was one person whose consistent sound and sensible advice about life and personal things I admired-- plus - and so rare, would trust totally with anything. Because of our 17-month age difference, and our both liking silliness, I affectionately called him "Young James." I hoped we would see each other as he was considering it in his upcoming travels. In his final email, his last words were "All is well here on the coast of Maine and we are doing fine for old folks that is.. Talk to you soon and give the kitties a pat on the head from their uncle young james. Take care my friend Love Ya." Me too Buddy. Days later, he was gone. Young James, you are not forgotten.

Jim and I both started working at Mt. Sunapee on the very same day. Dick Parker sent Jim to work on the Province, and myself to the Duckling. I've considered him a friend ever since. So fitting that he and his family would request memorial gifts to be sent in his memory to NEHSA. He was a friend to anyone who loved and enjoyed Mt. Sunapee.....M.J.........

It's been 40 plus years since we hung out at his house in Bradford. From a day at the raft races at NEC, to bowling on his living room floor. A giant veggie stir fry, Annie/Sara running around barefoot, with her locks of blonde hair. To the two very large cross eyed Siamese cats that sat in the bathroom watching. . A gentle soul, a kind man. He will be missed by so many. RIP Jim
