Richard Hampton Mann
March 25, 1951 – June 1, 2022
Richard Hampton Mann, 71, of Richmond, VA passed away at home on Wednesday, June 1, 2022.
He was born in Roanoke, VA on March 25, 1951. After attending Emory and Henry for a short time, Richard moved to Richmond in the early 70’s and attended VCU. He started Hampton Construction in 1988 and he and Lissa ran it for 25 years. During this time, they developed many long-lasting relationships with contractors, customers, and vendors.
Richard was devoted to the love of his life, Lissa, and they were inseparable. They enjoyed spending cherished time at Myrtle Beach searching for sea glass and walking to the pier for evening drinks and dinner. He also enjoyed golfing and socializing with friends, including many young adults. Richard will be greatly missed by his many Mann cousins in West Virginia.
He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Alfred and Lorraine Mann.
He is survived by his loving wife and forever sweetheart, Lissa Cosgriff Mann, together for 48 years and married for 24 years. Additionally, he is survived by his brother, Bruce Mann; nieces, Jennifer Pooler, and Katie Kirjak; nephews, James Dahmer, Timothy Osterbind, and Matthew Osterbind; sisters-in-law, Debra Cosgriff Miller (Bill) and Kymberly Cosgriff Osterbind (Danny); and brother-in-law, Michael Alan Cosgriff (Shirley).
Richard’s generous and kind soul will be missed by all those who knew him.
A Celebration of Life will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 16 at Affinity Funeral Service, 2720 Enterprise Pkwy, Richmond, VA 23294.
Words are always so inadequate but wanted you to know I’m sorry for your loss. May time your abiding love and memories offer you comfort as time rolls on. May you find solace in this and the certainty that you will meet again.
I greatly respected Richard as a good hearted soul. He allowed me to tell him my corny jokes (even the West Virginia ones!). He would rank each one on an imaginary totem pole according to how funny he thought they were. Enjoyed our golf outings very much. He will be greatly missed.
