Vic Richards
William Richards  (Vic)

As fellow Topangan Dale Robinette put it, "Vic was an absolute Treasure to Topanga." Indeed, he was. Vic walked and ran an incredible life. From his sports days and teaching career, to his devoted marriage and volunteer contributions, Vic's footprint will be embedded forever in the mountains of Topanga. We will miss you, Vic. And you will live forever in our hearts! Jeanine, our heart and prayers are with you. Please feel our arms around you during this special time.

Please accept my condolences regarding the passing of William. I truly believe that you will see Vic alive and well once more in the future. The Bible assures us that, "All those in the memorial tombs will here his voice and come a resurrection of life..."(John 5:28,29) Look forward to that time.

Dearest Vic and Jeanine I address this note to you both as... for so many many years you and your love were inseparable. I have so many fond memories of working with Vic. But I will always remember the image of him behind the wheel of The Mustang at the head of the Topanga Days Parade. There is Vic Wearing a Hawaiian shirt and a smile. His boyish smile almost as large as the........ windshield. God Bless and keep you my friends dale robinette

Vic and I both are long time volunteers for Topanga's DRT (Disaster Response Team, now Disaster Radio Team). Every time a project was started Vic would come forward to volunteer. His persistently positive, calm "can do" attitude seemed to always bring out the best in everyone. At my own, in the trenches volunteer level, he was always right there offering help and support in any and every way he could. He has made a big positive difference for Topanga. Vic was wonderfully reliable check in on the DRT practice radio net on Sunday nights for many years. He was also a 100% attendee to the DRT meetings for many years. It seems to me Vic put his hand up every time a new project was formed. He once asked me a small favor to help him renew his ham license. I was so happy to be asked. It made me realize that my reaction was from how very much he had helped me and everyone else over and over that I felt privileged to be asked to help him. Volunteering can be so rewarding when you have people like Vic in your group.

Vic was gentle man and one I never knew to harbor any but generous thoughts. If he knew help were needed, his only thought was to find a way to give it.

I am very sad to not see Vic again. My condolences to Jeanine, and the rest of Vic's family and close friends. Vic had an incredible spirit. Always positive, always thoughtful - the kindness in him was ever present. I feel blessed to have been a recipient of his consideration. I don't think I ever saw him go straight to a judgment, especially a negative one. A lesson I hope to take to heart. Vic, thank you for the smile I feel when I think of you.
