Obituary for Pastor Herman Lee Richardson

Pastor Herman Lee Richardson, of Memphis, Tennessee, was born in a small town called Nesbit, Mississippi on May 8, 1952. He was preceded in death by both his father, Napoleon Richardson, Sr., and his mother, Lillie Mae Hill. He was the youngest of 24 children.

He was an 18 wheeler truck driver by trade. Most of his driving years were spent with Malone & Hyde, with his final years spent as a manager at Swift. Through driving, he saw the country, but his calling was much deeper.

Herman confessed hope in Christ Jesus at an early age. He married his high school sweetheart at 19yrs old, Mary Louise Tuggle. Then, before even turning 21, he accepted God's call to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
His dramatic call involved being lifted from the bed, then being dropped to the floor, while encompassed by a vision of light that brightened his extremely dark Mississippi home. From this calling, he preached all over the tri-state area for over 40 years. Known as the singing, teaching, powerhouse preacher; his tri-fold gifting was a great weight in the kingdom. At times ministering as far as the state of Virginia, he served in pastorage for over 20 years. The number of people baptized and the number of families healed under his care is too many to count (GLORY TO GOD!!)
