Joseph Richards

Joseph Richards passed away September 13, 2021. He was born to Floyd and Myrna Richards in Dallas, Texas. His life will not be measured by the three bronze stars he received serving in the Army or his bachelor’s degree in business from Nova Southeastern University. Or the career he spent working for the government until his retirement. But rather, he was a son, brother, husband, father and friend. Those roles defined him and brought out the best and worst of him. His hard edge could cut anyone down with just a look but there was true gentleness and caring there as well. While it is not known what took his life, his smile, laugh and love for his children will forever be remembered. His is survived by his sons Connor and Zachary Richards, sister Dawn Sewade and brother Gary Richards.

Jeff Adkinson

Jeff Adkinson, 63, business leader, husband, son, brother, father, grandfather and friend, passed away on August 31, 2021 with his beloved wife, Jan, by his side. Born in Schwabach, Germany on July 24, 1958, to Phillip and Heidi Adkinson, Jeff grew up in Germany and then spent his teenage years in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He attended Widefield High School in Security, Colorado and graduated in 1976. During high school, he was involved in the Reserve Officers Training Corp (ROTC). Following high school, Jeff enlisted in the United States Navy where he attended Navy Seal training and served honorably for our country. He was extremely patriotic. Jeff’s career path began in high school where he worked at a local paint store. Years later, his business career took off as he climbed the corporate ladder of Sherwin Williams. He repeatedly received recognition for his outstanding sales achievements and accomplishments. He left Sherwin Williams more than twenty years ago, but he is still well known for his remarkable success throughout the company. In time, Jeff’s career led him to a small construction company where weekly he would travel to Louisiana helping Hurricane Katrina victims rebuild their lives. He would often leave Monday mornings and return home on Friday nights. Although this was rewarding and difficult work, he missed his wife. Therefore, he decided to remain home in Coppell, Texas where he started Right Choice Painting & Construction, a family-owned and operated, residential painting company. Eventually, the company grew through Jeff’s expansion to include residential remodeling and roofing. Jeff and Jan built a successful business that periodically employed over 100 people. Their motto was “never leave a job until the customer is happy,” and each job was treated as if it was being completed in their own home. Their company was Award Winning with over 100 customer service awards that included Texas Small Business Champion and Coppell Chamber Business of the Year. Jeff was also community minded. He served on the Coppell Chamber of Commerce Board for three years and stepped up to fill the role of treasurer for one of those years. In addition, he felt it was important to support the community which he did by donating to numerous city organizations. Jeff was extremely athletic, and he loved sports. It was often you would see a Right Choice vehicle at Riverchase Golf Club on Friday afternoons. He was a huge fan of John Elway and the Denver Broncos, with an encyclopedic knowledge of the details and statistics of his favorite teams. He was full of life and full of energy. He loved to dance; he loved disco; and he loved his music loud and on repeat. Jeff and Jan constantly talked about how grateful they were for their love and relationship. Anyone who was around them knew how deeply they loved each other. He loved family time, especially Sunday afternoons with his wife, children, and eventually grandchildren. As a matter of fact, his last trip was early July to Charleston, South Carolina to meet his brand-new grandson. He was looking forward to retiring at year’s end so that he and Jan could road trip around the United States to visit family and some of their favorite places, like Las Vegas and Boca Raton. Surviving is his wife of nearly 25 years, Jan Wagner Adkinson; his mother, Heidi Adkinson and the late Phillip Ray Adkinson II; his brother, Ronald Adkinson and his wife Laurie; his son, Craig Adkinson and his wife Karen, his daughters Jordan Mederos and her husband Kyle, Kalie Nitzsche, and Jenna Harper and her husband Stiles. He is also survived by his grandchildren who lovingly called him “Poppy”: his 6 granddaughters Emily Adkinson, Roen Mederos, Elle Nitzsche, Blair Harper, Halle Adkinson, Wrenn Adkinson and his newborn grandson Andrew Harper.

John Russell Todd, Jr.

The family of John “Buddy” Russell Todd, Jr. is saddened to announce his passing on September 13, 2021, just shy of his 85th birthday. Buddy was born in Pittsburgh, KS on September 28th, 1936 and grew up in Ft. Smith, AR. He graduated from the University of Missouri with a bachelor’s in Business Administration and relocated to Dallas proper in his late 20’s where he made lifelong friends. Later, in the early 70’s, he relocated to Flower Mound where he and his wife, Susan, raised their family. Impassioned with the town, he found a great community of people and became active in the town council. He was an independent sales representative for various manufacturers of baby furniture and supplies. Buddy had a great passion for aviation! His residence included a grass runway where he enjoyed flying vintage airplanes. There he also raised a herd of buffalo and supported the preservation of the declining American Bison population. He loved animals, outdoor activities and spending time with his family. His interest in flying inspired both his children to pursue careers in aviation as well. Always the life of the party, Buddy was a very social guy who loved to initiate dinners and get-togethers with friends. Buddy enjoyed learning about history and taking road trips across the country. Always fascinated with trains, he collected Lionel models and even an actual caboose. An enthusiasm for history also led him to collecting World War II Army vehicles or anything else unique he found on his road trips. He was truly one of a kind and never ordinary! Preceded in death by parents John and Pearl Todd, he will be lovingly remembered by his sister Catherine Mutch, former spouse Susan Todd, son Mark and daughter Tiffany. Buddy will be dearly missed by so many loyal, caring friends and neighbors. The family wishes to send a special thanks to the staff at Ardent Hospice, all his caretakers and friends for their help and compassion during his final months. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Parkinson’s Foundation. Please join us for a Memorial Service on Friday Sept. 24 at 3:30 p.m. at Flower United Methodist Church, 3950 Bruton Orand Blvd., Flower Mound, TX 75022.
