It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Chris Richardson, owner operator of Gods and Punks Tattoo shop. Chris passed away from a massive heart attack August 12th, 2016. Born July 26th, 1967 in Lillooet, BC, he graduated high school in Chilliwack and eventually moved to Calgary where he did his tattoo apprenticeship. There he became involved with the Reptile Society, also turning to construction and eventually working for himself, hanging siding. When Chris returned home, he started the BC Reptile Society before branching off into his tattoo business. Chris loved his family, friends, his cats, gardening, working on old cars, especially El Caminos. Then eventually motorcycles. Those that knew Chris knew he loved his motorcycle and speed. Chris leaves to mourn his wife Darcey, daughter Molly, mother Rosemary (Sully), sisters Cynthia (Don), Tara (Steve), nieces and nephews Chris, Miranda, Tristan, Ethan & Elena. A special thank-you to Tracey, the Paramedics and the Emergency Room Staff that worked so hard to save Chris’s life. A special mention to those that he loved and were a huge part of his life, Lucette, Jason, Walter and Brown. There will be no service as per his wishes. Chris was truly an artist and will leave a huge hole in the lives that he touched.
Ride on Chris, till we meet again.
