William Hollis Richardson, Jr. was born in Rutherford County to William Hollis Richardson, Sr. and Kathleen L. Yokley Richardson on July 15, 1960 and he transitioned from this earthly life to eternal life on March 20, 2013 in the comfort of his own home.

He attended high school at Oakland High School and graduated in 1979. He went on to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Music with a minor in Recording Industry Music from Middle Tennessee State University.

As a student at Central Middle School, he played trumpet in the band and his musical talents blossomed further while taking piano lessons from Katherine Franklin who taught in her home on State Street.

Since he attended Oakland High School 30 years ago, William has taught hundreds of students to play piano.

He toured America and abroad with the Grammy Award winning Imperials Quartet, legends in both Southern and Contemporary Gospel Music. He, at one time, was music director for the popular Nashville Gospel Show on WSMV Television. William has played faithfully week-after-week at World Outreach Church in Murfreesboro since 1984 when the congregation totaled about 75. Today the local church has approximately 10,000 worshipers each weekend. He played piano for 20 years at the Stones River Country Club; and still performed at countless weddings, private parties, and special events. He also played for other numerous churches including, Walnut Grove, Bradley Creek, Cedar Grove, and Cherry Grove to name a few.

On June 11, 1988, William was united in marriage. From this union two boys were born. The older of the two boys, Brandon Hollis Richardson, was born on August 21, 1990, two years later the youngest boy, Bryan Andrew Richardson, was born July 28, 1992.

William Jr. is preceded in death by his father, William Hollis Richardson Sr.; grandparents, Irene Ward, Robert Yokley,
