Deacon Leonard Richardson

This is a story about an 82-year-old man who made a life-altering change at age 50 by allowing his faith, his energy and his love of life, family and friends to steer him into becoming a Deacon at age 53.  Deacon Leonard Richardson, tells us on the podcast how his connection to family, friends, and his Catholic religion were the guideposts along the way to becoming an example of how to grow older with gusto!
He is always open to change that points people in “the right direction, and talks about marching with Martin Luther King from Marquette Park here in Chicago back in the day!
He lives by the universal adages, “Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You” and “We Shall Love Our Neighbors As Ourselves”.
