Obituary

Mr. James Albert Richmond was born to Eugene Richmond "Mutt" and Estelle McGhee Richmond in Orange County, NC on October 7, 1960.  Following a period of declining health, he was granted his wish to go home to be with the Lord on January 22, 2020 while he was being cared for by the medical staff of Duke University Hospital.  He was a textile laborer before becoming disabled.  Even though he was disabled he still loved the outdoors- gardening and farm work.  He loved working on cars, watching TV and football.  He was one of the Monte Carlo Brothers from back in the day.  He joined St. James Missionary Baptist Church at an early age. 

He leaves loving memories to his two sons: Travis Richmond and Jamison Richmond; three grandchildren; one great-grandchild; ten siblings: Eugene McGhee (Shelva), William Richmond, John Richmond, Jimmy Richmond, Willie Richmond, Robert Richmond, Mary Wiley (James), Carolyn Richmond, Louise Love (Rickey) and Betty Richmond and a host of nieces & nephews, other relative and dear friends.  

He now joins his parents Mutt and Estelle and a sister Shirley Gene Dean.
