Bobby E. Richards, 86, of Franklin, Tennessee passed away February 10, 2020 at his residence.

Mr. Richards was born in Nashville, to the late Gus Richards Sr. and Georgia Mills Richards. He retired from sales and graduated from Cumberland High School.

Bobby was born into a family that loved the Tennessee Walking Horse, and he loved to go “horse-in.’” This was usually a day trip to different horse barns looking for the best colt for the upcoming season. He has passed this love of horses to his sons and grandsons. Along with horses, Bobby loved farming, gardening and raising chickens and goats. He was a member of the Church of the City in Franklin and he loved cooking for the Room in the Inn Men’s breakfast at the Church.

His survivors include his wife of 54 years, Judy Cooley Richards; daughter, Phyllis (Terry) Bellenfant; sons, Bobby Earl (Cindy) Richards Jr. and Christopher Howard (Nicole) Richards; grandchildren, B.J., Bradley, Tanner, Mason, Finley, and Harper; great-grandchildren, Briar, Lottie and Reese; brothers, Gus “Jack” (Beck) Richards Jr. and Dr. Roger (Linda) Richards; and sisters, Dorothy Ellis, Betty (Ed) Causey and Peggy Fielder.

Services were conducted on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at Williamson Memorial Funeral Home with Ed Alexander officiating. Visitation with the family was also on Thursday prior to the service. Burial was conducted in Williamson Memorial Gardens.

Grandsons and nephews served as pallbearers. Honorary pallbearers were nieces.
