We received the following from Jerry’s daughter, Sally:
Jerry Richards worked at ESL/TRW Sunnyvale for 24 years. He made many friends at the company and used his skills from his 20 years serving as special services in the Navy to solve issues and innovate. He and his wife of 53 years retired to Las Vegas. They spent many happy years there pursuing hobbies, reuniting with old friends and traveling on the open road in their RV. They moved to San Diego to be closer to their daughter, her husband and their granddaughter. His other daughter moved to Idaho and has a family — Jerry and his wife were able to spend time with his great-granddaughter. He fought a hard battle with cancer, and transitioned Pearl Harbor Day, 2016. He left behind many friends, if you’d like to contact his wife Hilda Richards, you may contact her through their daughter Sally at 310.601.0070.
