John Henry Richardson, DCM, CD, was born in Victoria, BC on April 30, 1927 and died in Calgary, Alberta on December 26, 2008. His service number was SK12487. Chief Warrant Officer Richardson served in the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry in Canada, Korea, continental Europe and Cyprus from May 16, 1945 to January 20, 1973, retiring as a Regimental Sergeant Major. John served in the RCMP for eight years as a Special Constable. He subsequently worked with the Alberta Forestry Service. John was a member of the PPCLI Association, Korea Veterans Association, RCMP Veterans Association, and the Royal Canadian Legion. He served as a paratrooper and jump instructor, was wounded in Korea in October 1952 and was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal. He also served as Regimental Sergeant Major of the Canadian contingent in Cyprus in 1971 and was active in the PPCLI Association until his passing. He returned to Korea in 1983 and again in 1997, and supported efforts to have the government honour Korean veterans through memorials. John was survived by his sister Dr. Mary H.
