On Tuesday, July 3rd a great man Mike Richardson passed away. He was surrounded by his loving family.

Mike was born on November 25, 1966 to Kathleen Jorgensen and Philip Schulte in Phoenix, Arizona and was later adopted by Dallas Richardson.

He moved to Utah as a child and made some really great friends that he loved and continued to be friends with until his death. Mike graduated from Taylorsville High School and worked as a project manager for Associated Fixtures for many years. He loved the work and the people he worked with.

Mike loved camping, fishing, and being with his family. His happiest times where spent out on the water fishing with anyone who wanted to go. His great love/passion for fishing was inherited from his grandfather Frank, he then in turn passed that passion on to his only grandson. He treasured the many summer days and nights camping with his family and friends. We had all hoped for him to have one more trip.

He was married to Mona Saxton and they had a beautiful daughter, Kayla. They later divorced. Mike married the love of his life, Karen, on September 15, 2001. They spent 19-1/2 years together building a great life and creating an incredible love story.

Mike is survived by his wife, Karen Richardson, his children, Kayla Richardson (Brooke), Jennifer and Nic Wright, and Amanda and Chris Burr. Three grandchildren, Tanner, Kali, and Ava. Father, Phil Schulte, step-father, Dallas Richardson, and uncle, Richard Jorgensen (Melanie). He is preceded in death by his mother Kathleen Richardson, grandparents Frank and Ethel Jorgensen.

Mike would want his friends and family to always be sure to hug the people you love, have a shot of crown, catch some fish, and relax in your campground. We will forever miss him. There will be a viewing Sunday, July 8, 2018 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm at Valley View Funeral Home 4335 West 4100 South, West Valley City, Utah.
