Family of the Rev. John "Jack" Richards

January 15, 2021

Please pray for the family of the Rev. John “Jack” Richards, who passed away on Dec. 24. He was an ordained United Methodist Minister and attended Iliff School of Theology in Denver. He served as pastor to Johnstown United Methodist Church in Colorado before being called to active duty as a Chaplain in the United States Air Force. He served for 30 years on active duty at bases throughout the U.S, as well as in Madrid, Berlin, Tokyo, and Ankara, Turkey. His final assignment for the air force was at Peterson Airforce Base. He then founded Wilson UMC before retiring from active ministry. Richards asked only that he be remembered as “one who loved people and gave himself to God.”
