John, 70, of Iowa, Louisiana passed away on October 19, 2020. John was born to John Coogan Richey Sr. and Ruby Vincent Richey. He is survived by his wife, Sandra, brothers Darryl and Randy, sisters Katherine, Barbara and Debra, his children Janeen and John III Richey, Cody Alvey, Josee’ Barousse, Allison Oswald, as well as eight grandchildren. He is preceded in passing by his father John Coogan Richey Sr., his mother, Ruby Vincent Richey, and brother Phillip. In John’s late fifties, he met his wife Sandy and created a beautifully blended family. Anyone who knew their relationship knew it was a whirlwind and one that he cherished deeply. Being a kind and dependable father was of the utmost importance to John, and he certainly did not disappoint when it came to wholeheartedly loving his family. John was known for his contagious laughter and his love for life. He was the “Ruler of the Remote” at home as nearly every day he watched LSU, the Saints or the Astro’s. John loved all things mechanical even after retiring from ConocoPhillips as a Refinery Instrumentalist. John served in the United States Air Force. He was considered to be a grill-master and loved to show off his skills in the kitchen and on the barbecue pit but was mostly known for his famous gumbo. He was always the first to offer a meal to anyone who needed or wanted one. As a devoted Catholic and a great man of Christ, John always looked for the good in people. He greeted everyone he met with open arms. He was spontaneous and lively who thoroughly enjoyed taking vacations with his family. As a big jokester he could make any person smile and laugh with his antics. But most of all, he was known for his big heart and kind smile that warmed every room he entered and the hearts of every person he met. A celebration of life will be held in Johnson & Brown Funeral Home of Iowa on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 3 p.m. His family will be present to welcome loved ones.
