Obituary

 

Jace-Michael Aries Richardson was born on Memorial Day, May 27, 2019, to MilTonda C. Valentine and Jon-Michael T. Richardson. Just as his name Aries, which means God of Battle, Jace came into the world a fighter. The doctors expected Jace on May 25, but he held out to his actual due date of May 27. Jace was a perfect angel, never cried much, and was the sweetest baby boy. He was a curious and intuitive baby and loved starting his day with his special morning song he shared with his mommy and daddy.


At six weeks of age, Jace started attending Gabo’s Schoolhouse, owned by Mrs. Georgene “Gabo” D. Brown. Jace made a special impact on everyone right away. He loved his school buddies and, to Gabo, he was her special grandson.


Jace never met a stranger and was the life of every gathering. He loved running, so his personal mascots became Sonic the Hedgehog and Catboy of PJ Masks.
 

His wisdom spanned beyond his two years and eleven months, and he loved spending time with his Old G’s (YaYa and GrandT). With them, Jace was sure to have whatever he wanted and do whatever he wanted at whatever time he wanted to do it, including walking his dogs and being on his own personal iPad.


Jace loved his mommy and daddy so much. He loved reading and would sometimes read up to eight books in a single night. He loved playing on his tablet, going to the park, watching movies, playing games, running at Sonic speeds, being Spider-Man, drinking smoothies, and just being an awesome kid.
 

Jace tragically departed this life, Thursday, April 28, 2022. He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Velva Valentine.

Jace is survived by: his mom, MilTonda C. Valentine; dad, Jon- Michael T. Richardson; grandfather, Milton Valentine (Diane); grandmother, Carla “YaYa” D. Richardson; grandfather, Charles Robinson; great-aunt, Veronica “GrandT” Richardson; aunts, Leticia Knox (Domon), Paris Henderson, Sydney Hart, and Kellie G. Amanda Richardson; uncles, Byron K. Jackson and Kristopher Wade Richardson; godparents, Donald Nichols and Erica Williams; special grandmother, Georgene “Gabo” D. Brown; and a host of cousins, family, and friends.
