William J. Richards

March 25, 1961 — January 14, 2021

Bill Richards, age 59, of Pewaukee, passed away suddenly, the result of a heart attack, on January 14, 2021. Beloved husband of 31 years to Mary Richards (nee Gosy), he was the loving father of Will, Ann and Mike. He is survived also by his mother, Jean Richards Davis. He was a loving relative and true friend of many.

Bill obtained an undergraduate degree in 1983 from Valparaiso University, and his law degree from the University of Wisconsin in 1987. He was a hardworking, honorable, devoted family man. His greatest pride and joy were his kids who were blessed with one of the greatest dads ever. His career included years in private law practice in Milwaukee and most recently as an attorney with the State of Wisconsin Department of Revenue in Madison. His interests were those of a Renaissance man and included Valpo alumnae, the Green Bay Packers and UW Badgers, Costco “datenights,” country music, shopping for cars and the latest technology. He will be missed by all who relied on him for his love, friendship, technical support, July 4th fireworks, and advice for the purchase of vehicles and appliances.

An immediate service will be private due to the pandemic. The Service will be live streamed at 10:00AM Friday, January 22, 2021.
