Kenneth Todd "T.R." Richardson, 46, of Jacksonville, Florida went home to be with the Lord on May 14, 2023.

Todd grew up in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where he was an accomplished golfer for many years. He played on the Central High School golf team and graduated from there in 1995. He went on to the University of Mobile, where he graduated with honors. Todd, after playing golf in both high school and college, eventually played professionally. Among his greatest golf achievements was his double eagle at the Rolex Tournament of Champions in Atlanta, Georgia. In his chosen career, Todd excelled in truck sales.

Todd was one of those people who, when he left us, left us with a great void in our hearts. Todd was one of those people who touched others, just by being around them. Whether on the course, in a church, at a ballgame, fishing, or grilling with friends, Todd was kind, compassionate, and gentle - one of the funniest, friendliest and most fun-loving people you could ever know. Todd, as one friend recently said, was "the most alive person you could ever meet" and now, he is at home with Jesus, more alive than ever.

Todd is preceded in death by grandparents James and Sara Richardson and Darlene Snyder; uncles Gary Richardson, Don Richardson, and Randy Snyder.

Todd is survived by his parents Ken and Rita Richardson; grandfather; Grover Snyder; uncles Mike Richardson and John Hutchins; aunts Lisa Hutchins (John), Kennetha Richardson and Krista Snyder; cousins Shea Wright (Chris), Nick Richardson (Holly), Hunter Richardson (Jana), Rob Richardson (McCall), Keely Duke, Andrew Snyder (Kaysi), Taylor Hughes (Brandon), and a host of dear extended family members.

Pallbearers will be Johan Hagenfeldt, Andrew Snyder, Brandon Hughes, Petey Sumner, Chuck Bracknell, Bill McCook, Bryan McCook, Bobby Roberts, and Phillip Austin.

Honorary Pallbearers will be Harold Barnes, Drew Linn, Danny Fields, Terry Lynn Adams, Bo Buford, Jerry Brown, Coach Robert and Rosa Beck, Darryl and Nancy Summerall, Arnet Fields, Beth Carnie, Dusty Davis, Glenn Templeton, Wayne Bailey, Cherry Hood, Jerry and Kathy Burnette, "Bro. Jimmy" and Barbara Kelley, members of Ridgecrest Baptist Church, Employees of Arrow Truck Sales (Jacksonville, Florida), and many friends in Chattanooga and Franklin, Tennessee.
