Lewiston – SFC Eric E. Richardson, 55, a resident of Canton, passed away unexpectedly due to a coronary event, Saturday, December 14th at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. He was “made in Germany”, and was born October 13, 1964, the son of Sherman “Scamp” Richardson and Mary (Mann) Richardson.

In 2004 he was mobilized to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. In 2010 he was assigned as a Retirement Services Officer in the Maine Army National Guard State Human Resources Office.

Richardson on December 31, 2017 with over 34 years of service, for which he received numerous awards. Eric was a member of the John D. Long American Legion Post 58 in Buckfield.

So sorry to hear and somewhat bowled over about Eric's passing. I served with him in the 133d EN BN for several years. I will always remember Eric as being very pragmatic and realistic about his job, Iraq issues while we there, always somewhat slow in speaking which made you feel like he knew what he was talking about so you felt confident in his leadership decisions and his life and work advice. I remember when he sold my husband Jeff that old blue Ford king cab truck and thought we weren't getting the best deal. But in the end we ran that truck for several years before it finally quick. Thank you Eric for that memory - I will miss you Eric! Mary Reutlinger, SSG Retired.
