It is with great sadness that the Holy Name community announces the passing of our Athletic Director, Jack Richardson ’79.

Mr. Richardson began serving as the school’s athletic director in 2009. Prior to his time in that position, Mr. Richardson was already involved as a Holy Name alumnus. He served on the Holy Name Advisory Board, and was a dedicated member of both the Alumni Association and Athletic Boosters.

Above all else, Mr. Richardson was a devoted and proud father of his two sons, Ryan ’10 and Michael ’12. He also leaves behind so many who knew him as a loyal friend who was always willing to help.

Friends may pay their respects at the Schuster Straker O’Connor Funeral Home (5904 Ridge Road, Parma, OH 44129) on Friday, May 5 from 2 – 5 p.m. and 6 – 8 p.m. The funeral Mass will be Saturday, May 6 at 9 a.m. at St. Charles Borromeo Church (5891 Ridge Rd, Parma, OH 44129), with interment at All Saints Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the Alzheimer’s Association, 225 N Michigan Ave., Floor 17, Chicago, IL 60601, in memory of Marion Richardson.

Thank you to everyone in the community for your amazing support this week. We ask that you continue to pray for Mr. Richardson, as well as Ryan and Michael, during this difficult time.
