Stephen “Steve” Kent Richman

Stephen “Steve” Kent Richman, 76, Kokomo, passed away Tuesday, April 23rd, 2024, at Grand Brook Memory Care in Fishers, Indiana. Born in Muncie, Indiana on September 22, 1947, he was the son of Wilbur and Effie (Holbert)Richman. Steve graduated from Kokomo High School in 1966. He served honorably in the United States Navy, on the USS Charles H. Roan from 1967-1970.

He was married to Patricia (Patty) Richman on May 19, 1977. Steve is a Delphi Delco retiree (2001), where he was an active leader in the UAW through the 1980s. Throughout his life Steve was very active and loved to be outdoors. You could always find him camping, weather that was in a tent or his motorhome, training his dogs (German short-haired pointers) to hunt, hunting deer, pheasant and quail, floating the Eel River, fly fishing, golfing or just piddling in the yard.

Steve’s greatest trait was his loyalty and pride in his family and friends. He particularly enjoyed the company of his grandsons. Always one to help someone in need, he was known as someone you could rely on. His sarcastic sense of humor was a comfort to friends and family alike and he could always be counted on for a good “dad joke.” He especially enjoyed a good meal out and was very fond of his breakfast club at the Windmill Café.

He is preceded in death by his wife Patty (who recently passed on January 7th), his parents Wilbur and Effie (Holbert) Richman and brother Michael Richman. He is survived by his children Denise (Kim) Henderson, Indianapolis, IN; Jed (Molly) Richman, Pendleton, IN; grandchildren Jalen Hodges, Chicago, IL and J.R. and Toby Richman, Pendleton, IN; brother Tim Richman, Kokomo, IN and many special nieces, nephews, and close friends.

George's genuine interests went beyond his work. He found joy and contentment in spending time with his grandson, Jaylen Marsh. During his leisure time, he enjoyed fishing, playing cards with his close friend Jessie Hillman, and spending time with his furry companion, Bailey.

George Dickerson's memory will always be cherished by his loving wife, Loretta Smith Dickerson, and his daughters Alyssa (Demario) Brown from Champaign, IL, and Yolanda (Nate) Newsom from Louisville, KY. He leaves behind a legacy through his beloved grandchildren: Jaylen and Brianna from Kokomo, IN, Derrick from Fishers, IN, and Jaya from Jacksonville, FL.

He had a close relationship with his niece, Latisha (Melvin) Johnson, as well as his three nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Samuel Dickerson.

George R. Dickerson's love and vibrant spirit will forever be remembered and engraved into the hearts of all blessed to know him. May his soul find eternal peace in the comforting embrace of the divine.
