He was born to Walter Richmond and Nancy Jane Wade Richmond in Caswell County, North Carolina on October 18, 1941. He was a 1960 graduate of Pleasant Grove Union High School. He married the love of his life Dorothy Sellars Richmond in 1961. They shared an inseparable love for over 60 years. He was the owner and operator of Richmond Trucking for several years.

After much prayer and fasting, he accepted the call into the Gospel Ministry and was the pastor of Smith's Chapel Missionary Baptist Church for over 25 years and was the founder of Allred New Mission Missionary Baptist Church. He loved the Lord, good gospel music, a little farming, good food and fellowship. He was truly a servant at heart who will be missed by his family, congregation and many dear friends.
