~ The Obituary ~

     Brother Charlie Lee “Ronnie” Richardson was born on April 2, 1957, in Britton’s Neck, SC.  He was born to the late Annie Bell Richardson-Woodford and James Skipper; raised by the late Frazier and Agnes Taylor- Richardson.

     Charlie was joined in holy matrimony to Verlinear Richardson for 42 years, from this union came two daughters, Barbara and Sophia Richardson. Charlie “Ronnie” a husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend was a man that many depended on. He was loved by everyone who encountered him, because of his warm and nurturing heart. Charlie loved the Lord. This could be seen in the multitude of ways he provided for and was of service to others, both familial and foreign. Whether it was merely his time, a space to share, an item to preserve, a dish to be cooked, a veggie from his garden, or prayer; Charlie would be there. In his grandeur, he was a man of few words and many glorious works.
