It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of our beloved Shiloh. Shiloh Tommy Richardson, 37, of
Midland, Texas, passed away on 11/16/2021 at Baylor All Saints Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas.
He was born to parents Candance Parker and Brady Richardson, on 09/13/1984 in Midland, Texas.
Lovingly raised by grandparents Roy and Phyllis Richardson.
Brought up in a Christian school, Shiloh loved the Lord and was one of the kindest people. He was always
willing to pray for you, lend a helping hand, or give you the very shirt off of his back.
Shiloh was born in Midland, Texas but had a strong, innate desire to travel the world.
He joined The United States Marine Corps 01/20/2004 and was able to fulfill his dream to serve his
beloved country and travel the world. He quickly gained the rank of CPL and was a 3531 motor vehicle
operator, driving seven-tons. He was awarded the Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, Global War
Terrorism, Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and Expert Rilfe Qualification Badge.
After being honorably discharged on 01/11/2006 Shiloh pursued his lifelong passions of piercing, art, and
tattooing. Shiloh worked for many years as a tattoo artist before his dreams became a reality and he
opened his own shop Heart and Dagger Tattoo in Odessa, Texas, in January of 2018. He was an amazing
tattoo artist who loved what he did. He went above and beyond, always making sure his customers felt
welcome and safe in his shop. Shiloh loved his shop family more than anything and worked day and night
to support not only himself but those around him. Shiloh was known for “erasing hate”, he spent a lot of
time doing cover up tattoos for people that came to regret having hate or racial tattoos. This is
something he did for free. His legacy will live on in his two dearly loved apprentices, who he taught and
trained for the last few years. It was always his hope that they would go forth with joy and purpose,
sharing his passion for art and tattooing.
Shiloh loved life and he lived everyday to the fullest. He had such a voracious hunger for life and
adventure. Many of his hobbies and passions included horse riding, motocross, archery, competitive clay
shooting, fishing and hunting, oil painting, travel, art, playing the violin, and rain or shine cheering for his
beloved New Orleans Saints.
Shiloh later met the love of his life, Sarah Richardson on 11/7/2016 when she came into his shop to get a
tattoo. Although he didn’t speak a single word to her that day, after she left, he said he was going to
marry that girl. They were married on 03/10/2018 on Inishmore Island, Ireland.
Shiloh is survived by Sarah Richardson, wife, Candance & Scott Parker, mom and stepdad, Brady
Richardson, father, Phyllis Richardson, Grandmother, Chrystal Cross and Clint, sister and brother-in-law,
Clayton Richardson, brother, Corey Baker, brother, Shaun and Danielle Sanders, brother and sister-in-law,
Trina and Coby Easterwood, aunt and uncle, Stacee Crabtree, niece, Lainee Easterwood, niece, Toree
Easterwood, niece, Collin Cross, nephew, Kendall Cross, niece, Wesson Sanders, nephew.
He also leaves behind too many friends to list around the world. He left an impact on everyone that he
met, even if it was a brief encounter. Shiloh never met a stranger in his life, his heart was always full of
laughter and friendship. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
The family has entrusted North Dallas Funeral Home with the arrangements. The family encourages all
who knew Shiloh to attend to share memories and celebrate his life.

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you. Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad. Love, The Gillilands
