History

We are honored to be part of the vibrant history of Calhoun County. The land beneath Richardson Funeral Home was originally purchased by Frank Richardson in 1947.

Over 70 years of funeral service

Over the next 50 years, the small funeral home on Main Street provided outstanding care to families across Calhoun County. Ownership of the funeral home in Port Lavaca changed hands several times throughout the years, and in 1961, Frank Kelly Sr. took the helm.

In 1988, Lloyd G. Hobbs took control until 1999, and in 2001, we became the Richardson-Colonial Funeral Home. Our current building has been in operation since 1960, when it was built by Rudy Rendon. As part of the historic fabric of Calhoun County, it is our honor to serve the community in which we work and live.

"My mother had purchased a prearranged funeral plan so that made the process so much easier. So easy that I plan to do the same things for my children."

"One is never fully prepared for the death of a loved one. When it happens, it seems like there are suddenly a thousand things that need to be dealt with. When I called Colonial Richardson, it was such a relief to hear Jason say, 'All of that has been taken care of.' I strongly recommend a pre-need arrangement. One of the prices had actually come down, so the overall cost was less than what had been agreed upon. With my life in turmoil, how would I ever have known what the current value of that particular product/service was? That really meant a lot to me when I was made aware of the drop in price. Where else are you going to find that kind of honesty?"
