Obituary for Richard B. Jefferson

April 7, 2020
Bensalem, Pennsylvania


Richard B. Jefferson of Bensalem, PA passed away on Tuesday, April 7, 2020. He was 37. Born in Philadelphia, PA, he was the son of Elizabeth Jefferson (nee Emery) and Richard Jefferson (Janie White). He was the loving fiancé of Alison McConnell. They are the parents of Cecilia, Daniel, Bridget and Augustus. He is the brother of Dennis Jefferson, Jennifer Birkmire (Ray) and Stephanie Bondarenko (Oscar Sanchez) and an uncle to Kevin, Matthew, Tori, Madison, Riley, Sydney, Elizabeth, Krista, Lukas, Oscar and Emery. He will also be missed by many aunts, uncles and cousins. He is preceded in death by his best friend, Jake

Rich loved Alison and his children. He prided himself on sharing his love of nature with them. He was a farmer who would grow a field of their favorite things. He spent hours making meals for them. He was filled with endless creativity. Rich poured all of his wisdom into anyone that would listen. His children were ever attentive. He loved to end his days around the fire pit listening to music, roasting marshmallows and watching his kids play. He was a forever fan of Philadelphia's sports teams, more specifically the Eagles. Rich was the heart of his family gatherings, loving to make people laugh. Everyone enjoyed his colorful renditions of his life stories. He was spontaneous. The right song on the radio would inspire him to sing and dance. He was incredibly benevolent and would go out of his way for the people he cared for. He was a life-long learner, enjoying reading. He had the most thoughtful mind and could speak very eloquently on many subjects. His passion and energy inspired others and will continue to be a model for all who loved him.
