Travis you were a great friend and a great doctor. I so appreciated the funny times we had in the operating room and our spirited talks about politics. Thank you for operating on both of my hands and taking care of multiple members of my family over the years. I still can not believe that you are gone. You will be missed so much by the AMMC family. To the family, Katie, baby Connie, Nicholas and Stacey, please be comforted in knowing that Travis was a highly respected, unbelievably courteous and compassionate doctor who was a super busy hard worker, but at the same time never too busy to listen. I have personally had so many patients tell me about how impressed they were with his bedside manner. Travis we will all miss you. You were taken from us way too early. Rest In Peace my friend.

I am so truly sorry for the Richardson family loss. I was blessed to have Dr. Richardson as my doctor for over a year now. I only personally got to meet him once, but I know he over seen everything that was going on with me medically. The one time I did get to meet him he was so nice and courteous and actually listened to me on what was going on. To his wife and children I am praying for your physical, mental, and emotional health. May God guide you in these hard times.
Life had separated us at a young age but so much of my childhood memories involved Travis. He drove me to get better whether he knew it or not. I really wanted to catch up with him and reconnect and for selfish reasons I wish I had done so sooner. I am proud of the man he had become and in awe of what he accomplished. My heart goes out to all of the family and I wish I could do something to help. Being from Fifty Six is a pretty small fraternity and I never will forget it or Travis’s friendship. Jeff Rogers
My doctor for many years . Great caring man. Praying for his family. You will be greatly missed!
He took care of me for many years, and saw me lose my husband to cancer, he was a very caring man and will be dearly missed

So sorry for your loss. Really enjoyed working with Dr. Richardson. May Gods love and mercy comfort you in this time.
So sad to hear this, I really believe he was the best dr. for my problems I have. He will be truely missed.
You were my doctor for the past 4 years and took such great care of neck, back and more. I considered you much more than my doctor. You were a fellow veteran and friend. You will be missed.
My heart is sadden that i will never get to scrub a surgery with you again! You always made me laugh in every case, even if it was a difficult one.You would always have something comical to say and then you laughed at yourself which made it even funnier!You had a kind heart! You was always concerned about your patients. You hated to say no to them when everyone else did! You wanted to ease their pain! You even came to my rescue one night at 1030pm when i called you & (you was NOT on call) because my dad had broke his ankle and i was freaking out bc he had bone cancer & taking chemo..You came right away and treated him and helped ease my worries! Then you thanked me for letting you treat my family! ❤️It’s been a honor working with you. I will miss you & your laugh! Katie, i can’t imagine what you are going through! I pray for you mentally & physically. I can’t wait to see his Connie Marie! I’m glad you will have her to help comfort you & remember him always! My condolences to his son Nick which he loved more than anything! Talked about him constantly! Prayers for all of his family & friends!He was loved! ❤️
My condolences to the family. Dr. Travis did my knee, and my wife’s back. He was a great person with a wonderful bed side manor. He always had time for a few words when he was away from the office. He was a good man and fellow vet. I will miss him. RIP Brother.
I still can’t believe this is real. I have so many good memories of Travis. His smile was infectious and he was always smiling. He was always so competitive and always pushed himself to be the best he could. As a result he was a successful adult. From diving in dumpsters for retainers to lifting weights in the gym, I will carry all those memories on. Rest In Peace Travis!
Still can’t believe it. My heart is broken. I think Rex said it best... I guess I thought Travis was invincible. The world lost an intensely bright light way too soon.
Nick, I'm so sorry, he was a fierce father.
My heart is breaking for all of his loved ones that are left to grieve such a terrible loss. He will be truly missed by so many. I will be praying for the entire family as they try to cope.
Prayers for family. I enjoyed having Dr Richardson as my doctor.
I’ll never forget Travis. We got to know each other better 20 years after we graduated than we ever knew each other in school. Prayers for your family.
I’m so sorry for this loss. Travis was a great guy. Haven’t seen him in years but many great memories in childhood & our teen age years. Prayers for all the family and those who loved him.
My heart breaks for this loss. I remember Stacy and Travis growing up and watching them start their lives as grown men. It doesn’t seem possible for you to be gone. Praying for Stacy, Kim, Marva Jean and the entire family. Such a tragic loss.
Prayers for the family. Sorry I could not attend. Thank you Dr. Richardson.

You are so missed by so many. Your a great loss as a friend, Dr, surgeon, etc. Our community and your patients, family, friends will miss u greatly. Rest easy now Dr. Richardson
To Stacy, Marva Jean, Merle and all the family,I am so very sorry. I have fond memories of Travis from when we went to school together at Fifty Six. It's hard to believe that he's gone so young, but because of God's sacrifice on the cross and his sweet, saving grace, we'll be able to see him again one day. My thoughts, prayers and love are with you all. May you rest in peace Travis. Love,Dawn
Enjoyed working with you, Dr Richardson! I will miss you! Prayers for your family.
Travis - I think I thought you were invincible. This really doesn't make sense that you would leave so early. So many of the memories of my youth include you. Pivotal moments. Competitions of every kind. Fun, crazy adventures. You had a crazy number of gifts and talents, and you probably leveraged them more than anyone I know. You accomplished so much in 50 years. Hopefully you can take a break now, and whatever is next after this life, I hope it includes some time for us to sit down and catch up. Go Mustangs.Love, Rex
Nick and the Richardson family, please accept my deepest condolences for your loss.
