Obituary of Richard Standberry Person

Please share a memory of Richard to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Richard Standberry Person, age 72, went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Sunday, December 5, 2021, at home where he shared with his daughter.  He was born October 10, 1949, to the late Richard Standberry Person Sr. and Gladys Lee Person.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Betty Person, daughter, Dana Banks, brothers, Elco and Kelley Person.  Richard joined church at a young age at Brick Church which is now Liberty Baptist.

Richard got his education in Amelia Virginia and graduated from the former Russell Grove High School in 1968.  He attended Kittrell College, graduating in 1970 and furthered his education at Norfolk State University where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Minor in Biology in 1973.

He retired from GRTC in 2009 after serving for thirty-seven years as a Bus Operator.

Richard devoted his life to being an awesome brother, son, and most of all, a loving and devoted husband and father. He provided for his family and seem to be the “go-to” person in the family. 

He leaves to cherish his memories, his daughter, LaToya Person; step daughter, ReyTina Banks; two grandsons, Dana Banks and Phillip Irvin; two granddaughters, Zoelle Person and Diamond Banks; his mother, Gladys Person; two brothers, Rex and James Person; three sisters, Sharron Archer (Charles), Germaine Harris, Ycola Ford (Norris); eight nephews, eight nieces, host of cousins and friends; and his devoted caregivers, Andre Kanisha Anderson, Shametra Pegram, Ryland Harris, and Yolanda Wilkins.
