Death of a Retired Police Officer: PC 348 David (Dave) Richardson

It is with deep regret that we inform you of the death of a retired Police Officer, PC 348 David (Dave) Richardson, who died at Seaham Harbour Marina on Wednesday 27th December 2023, aged 69 years.

It is believed that Dave joined Durham Constabulary in 1974, retiring in 2004 and was awarded the Police, Long Service and Good Conduct Medal.

It seems that after initial training, Dave’s first posting was at Peterlee.  Some 5 years later he transferred to Traffic Patrols North, working the coastal areas, where he spent the majority of his service.  His last posting was at Peterlee, where he performed front office duties.

Dave was a much loved Dad and Grandad.

A funeral service is to be held at 10.00am Monday 22 January 2024 at Stanley Street Independent Methodist Chapel, Stanley Street, Seaham SR7 0AH, followed by interment at Christ Church Churchyard, Station Road, Seaham SR7 0BH.

Family flowers only, donations in lieu to the RNLI or North East Air Ambulance.

After the funeral, friends are invited to join the family at The Mallard, Stockton Road, Seaham SR7 8EP.

Our thoughts are with all of Dave’s family and friends at this sad time.
