    Date of Death

    Phillip “Ted” Richer, Jr., a sixth-generation native of Los Angeles, died on March 4, 2022 at the age of 86, in Glendale, California.

    Ted was a devoted husband to his best friend and wife, Lucia, for 61 years; an adoring father to David and Lesa (wife), Katherine and Michael (husband), Margaret, and Elizabeth and Jorenz (husband-deceased); and a proud grandfather to Corey, Lauren and Kian (husband), Ebenezer, and Christopher.
