William Andrew “Andy” Richards, age 38, of Cadiz, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, August 17, 2022. Born December 12, 1983 he was the son of William Michael “Mike” Richards and the late Ethel Richards of Jewett. He was also preceded in death by his brother in law Nick Bursac and his father in law Sam Bursac. He is survived by his wife of 14 years Tricia Richards, and their children Kylie, Evie, and Declan Richards; sisters Joanna (Tucker) Culver and Brittany (Ryan) Wood; nieces and nephew, Tirzah, Nessa, Payton, Aubrey, Emerson, and Taylor. He is also survived by his mother in law, Patricia Bursac, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends, as well as his grandfather.
Andy, or Andrew as Tricia called him, was a coal miner by trade. But to those who knew him he was much more than that. He was a loving husband and father. He adored his little family and was an incredible human. He worked hard, both at his job and at home with his family. He was involved in everything he could possibly be, whether it was helping coach, going for pontoon rides, working around the house, helping Pappap, or anything else - he was there. He had a love for music, campfires, being outside, and living life. To say he will be missed by many is an understatement.
