Marlow "Big Red" Richardson

June 25, 1954 ~ October 7, 2018 (age 64)

    Marlow Richardson, son of Nettie Richardson and the late Steveson Richardson, was born on June 25, 1954.  He peacefully departed this life on October 7, 2018 in the comfort of his home.  

    Marlow joined Pleasant Grove Baptist Church at an early age.  He remained a faithful member until his health declined.

    After completing his education in the Franklin County School System, he began his career at the eggplant in Louisburg, North Carolina.  He was a dedicated employee for forty-three years until his decline in health prompted an early retirement.

    Marlow was united in holy matrimony to Deloris Hedgepeth on July 28, 1978.  To this beautiful union two children were born, Lamont and Christopher.  During his time of illness, his loving wife Deloris was his earthly angel until his time of departure.

    He leaves to cherish his loving memory: his devoted wife of forty years, Deloris Richardson of the home; two sons, Lamont Richardson, Jr. and Christopher Denoris Richardson both of Louisburg, North Carolina; his loving mother, Nettie Richardson of Louisburg, North Carolina; five grandchildren whom he loved dearly, Nachelle, Lamont, Jr., Khailen, Olivia and Lyriq; two great grandchildren, Kameron and Eric Jr.; four brothers, Steven Richardson, Jr., (Linda), Cofield Richardson, Louis Richardson and William Richardson all of Louisburg, North Carolina; three sisters, Lorean Bobbitt, Bettie Richardson and Patricia Richardson all of Louisburg, North Carolina; a special niece, Karon, aka “Big Mama”; his Goddaughter, Sandy Richardson; a host of brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, many other relatives and friends.
