He was born September 21, 1935 in Madison, WI, the son of the late August G. & Mary (Kneeland) Richardt. He attended school in Madison. After high school, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps, serving for over 6 years until his discharge. He later enlisted in the U.S. Army, retiring as a Staff Sergeant after more than 33 years of active duty for his country. Joe was married to the former Darlene A. Hutter on May 15, 1973 in Madison. She preceded him in death on February 5, 2008. Joe was a member of the V.F.W., the American Legion, and also the Marine Corps League. He loved singing karaoke, and will be remembered for his love of country and western music! He enjoyed watching war movies, but his greatest love was of the old western movies featuring Gene Autry and Roy Rogers among others. Joe loved his soap operas, especially One Life to Live and General Hospital. He always had a great love for classic cars, trains, and airplanes. He also loved anything “cowboy”!
