CONWAY- Daymon Ray Richardson, age 50, of Franklin, VA, passed away on Saturday, July 3, 2021, at Southampton Memorial Hospital.
Daymon was born on June 11, 1971, to Douglas and Carol Haney Gentry in Jefferson County, Kentucky. Daymon worked for Hampton Farms but also spent many years as the meat cutter at Food Lion. He was an avid coffee drinker and fisherman and was known to drink coffee regardless of how hot it was outside. Daymon was passionate about baseball and softball, especially when it came to coaching little league, watching his kids play and even making the long drives to tournaments. He was always at practice and even when he wasn’t a coach, he was always there to help and cheer his kids on. Daymon was a hard-worker who was dedicated to his job, his family and his friends. He was known as Mr. Fix-It and was always willing to lend a helping hand, including stopping on the side of the road to help stranded motorists. He was a great father, grandfather and friend and will be missed dearly by all who knew him.
Daymon was preceded in death by his father, Douglas Richardson, his sister, Crystal Lawhorn and his two dogs, Sadie and Roscoe.
Left to cherish Daymon’s memory is his two daughters, Mackenzie Richardson of Conway, and Brittany Crawford; a son, Shawn France; two sisters, Angela Fenwick of Florida, and Mary French and husband Mark of Florida; two brothers, Bobby Gentry of NC, and John Richardson of Missouri; six nieces, Cheyenne, Caroline, Kristin, Chase, Arielle and Diana; two nephews, Riley and Logan; three grandsons, Dakota and Jaxson France, and Brantley Martin, along with many friends.
