N. Chesterfield, VA


Richard H. Robertson, 80, of N. Chesterfield, VA went to be with the Lord on Saturday July 6, 2024. He was born on March 15, 1944, to the late Richard M. Robertson and Ruth H. Robertson.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Sharon K. Robertson; son, Richard “Rob” S. Robertson (Hailey); Daughter Kristen R.W. Hicks (Ray); Brother David M. Robertson (Robin) and sister Ruth Anne R. Curtin (Chris); Grandchildren, Carly Hicks, Holden Robertson, and Maddox Wright.

Richard was a graduate of VCU with a master’s degree in business, and taught at VCU in the beginnings of the IT program. He co-authored the first high school IT textbook for the state of VA. He completed his career as an Administrator of IT at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College. As a member of Beulah United Methodist Church, he spent 25 years as contributions secretary, choir member, and held other leadership roles. He spent many hours watching his children and grandchildren’s sporting events and activities. When he wasn’t working his ideal way to relax was to spend time at his home in Holden Beach in N.C. Richard is like the seashells collected on the shore, a treasure to cherish forever. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him, especially his family.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that contributions be made to Chester United Methodist Church or James River Hospice. A Memorial Service will be held at Chester United Methodist Church on Friday, July 12, 2024 at 11am.

  1. We’re all going to miss you, your smile, your gentle ways, your thoughtfulness, and all those Faimly Memories together…look down and watch over us all.

  2. I was deeply saddened to hear of Richards passing. He was a kind welcoming and caring person in his quiet way. Even though I haven’t seen him for many years the world still seems a little less knowing he is no longer part of it. Love to you all. Sharon.

  3. Dear Sharon, Kristen, Rob, and family,
    Richard was such a kind treasure and we are so glad our lives intertwined! Wishing we could be with you to celebrate his life but please know that we hold you each in our hearts and wish you comfort each day.
    Mary Anne and Ted
