John D. Richards III
In Memoriam:
1970 – 2021

Richards Law founder and attorney, John Richards, passed away
August 11, 2021 in Holladay, Utah.
He was beloved by friends, colleagues, co-workers, and clients alike,
and his passing leaves an unfathomable void in the
Utah HOA legal community.
His infectious personality, relentless enthusiasm,
and welcoming presence will be sorely missed.
