AUBURN — Peter L. Richmond, a resident of Madrid Township, passed away on Tuesday, March 24, after a brief battle with cancer at the Hospice House in Auburn.

He loved teaching his great-grandson, Eli, the four-wheeler trails of Madrid and going snorkeling in the cold waters of Blue Ledges.

He is predeceased by his wife, Robbie; his mother, Jenny Pearl; his stepfather, Leo Pearl; and his father, Theodore Richmond Sr.; two sisters, Bev and Rhoda, and one brother, Carl.

He is survived by his son, Peter and his wife, Judy; his daughter, Jo and her partner, Brian; his grandchildren, Erin and her family, Jaime and her family, and Eben and his family; his brother, Bud; his sister, Lois; and his many, many nieces and nephews.
