Tom Richards Funeral Plans Announced

Updated 5:11pm, August 23: The on-campus memorial service for Tom will be held Saturday, August 28th at 11 am in Eisenhower Chapel.

Funeral arrangements have been finalized for Schreyer Scholar Tom Richards who passed away earlier this month while on a Leadership Jumpstart retreat to Camp Blue Diamond.

Tom was a rising sophomore studying political science and history. In addition to being in the Presidential Leadership Academy’s sophomore class, Richards was a member of the Penn State Mock Trial Club and the Liberal Arts Undergraduate Council.

The viewing will begin at 8:30 am, Saturday August 21 at the Lenape Valley Presbyterian Church, 321 West Butler Avenue, New Britain, PA., and the church service will follow. The family asks that contributions to the Thomas J. Richards Memorial Scholarship Fund be made (P.O. Box 12, Line Lexington, PA 18932) in lieu of flowers.

An on-campus memorial service is being planned for next Saturday, August 28, but details have not been finalized.
