Bio

John Richardson
John Morley RIchardson... moved to Canada in 1919... he married his wife Winifred Frewin on 25 June 1924 (they had a son Ron)... he passed away in Vancouver, BC on 5 October 1952... worked as a barrister... named in his honour, the John M. Richardson Memorial Cup was presented to Mainland competition winners for three seasons from 1952-53 to 1954-55 (it was first presented on 1 January 1953 to Westminster Royals FC)... 
 
said Richardson in 1946, “one thing I really like is a dashed good argument, but I want to be able to walk out of it and say to my opponent, let’s go and have a cup of coffee, chum’”... said Jock Hendry in 1952, “we will be lucky if we can replace John Richardson (as) no man devoted more time to the game and I suspect he gave up a lot of business to help us”...
