Mark Allen Richards, age 62 of Warsaw and previously a longtime resident of Syracuse, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, August 27, 2020 just before 9 p.m. in his Warsaw home.
The son of Virgil O. and Olivene May (Ott) Richards, Mark was one of four brothers and spent most of his life in Northern Kosciusko County. He was a Wawasee Warrior, having graduated from Wawasee High School with the class of 1976. He worked for many years at Johnson Controls in Goshen, and for the past several years, he worked as a press operator for Chore-Time Brock.
Mark was a kind person with a heart for family. He loved to laugh. Those who knew him best remember him for his unconditional love and as the glue of his family. He was a lover of classic rock and music of all kinds but especially liked Boston, Rush, Pink Floyd, Kansas and the like. He was an avid Green Bay Packers fan and previously enjoyed woodworking.
On July 5, 1985, Mark was united in marriage to Carolyn Dennis who survives in Warsaw. Also surviving with memories to cherish are daughter, Tamra “Tami” Thurby (husband, Rick) of Atlanta, GA; son, Cameron Richards (wife, Katie) of Warsaw; three grandchildren: Jeff Thurby, Brandon Thurby and Rachel Thurby; great-grandson, Charlie Johnson and a brother, Larry Richards of Syracuse. He was preceded in passing by brothers, Joe and Denny Richards and by their parents.
