Steven Thomas Richard passed away surrounded by his family the morning of September 8, 2020 at 64 years old. He was a lifelong resident of New Orleans and had such a passion for everything the city has to offer. Steve attended Louisiana State University, where he obtained a bachelor's degree in Biology and then earned his law degree from Loyola University College of Law. He practiced law for nearly 38 years. Steve was an avid sports fan and always wanted to get together with his children and grandchildren to watch The Saints or LSU take on their opponent.
He is preceded in death by his wife, Michele Lane Richard; father,
Albert Earl Richard, Jr.; and mother, Elizabeth Gately Richard. He is survived by his loving children, Allison Richard Kelley (Christopher Thomas Kelley) and Kathryn Richard Creed (Brad Michael Creed); his beloved grandchildren, Stephen Christopher Kelley, and James Thomas Kelley; his siblings, Elizabeth Richard Rouchell (Alvin Martin Rouchell), Albert Earl Richard, III (Jacqueline Raftery Richard), and Connie Richard Munson (Glen John Munson); his nieces and nephews, Margaret Munson Eagle, Caroline Munson Robertson, Michael MacNeil Richard, William Bradford Richard, Lisa Rouchell Pinho, Stephanie Rouchell Gordon, Gregory Fortier Rouchell, and Sarah Rose LaForte.
