Jacob Lawrence “Jake” Richman

August 18, 2004 — March 5, 2024

Jacob “Jake” Lawrence Richman, aged 19, of Bourbon, IN, passed away on Tuesday, March 5, 2024. Born on August 18, 2004, in Anderson to Joshua M. Richman and Laura L. (Foster) Hepler, Jake’s vibrant spirit touched the lives of many.

Jake attended Triton Jr/Sr High School, where he passionately played football. He was a dedicated member of the Honor Guard for the Hoosier Youth Challenge Academy in Knightstown, IN, with aspirations to enlist in the United States Air Force. In addition to his academic pursuits, Jake worked diligently at the Pilot Travel Center Station in Plymouth, IN, where he made lasting connections.

Beyond his commitments, Jacob found joy in various hobbies. He shared a special bond with his cousin and best friend, Chance, with whom he enjoyed playing video games. Jake’s love for music was evident, as he composed several pieces of his own throughout his life. He cherished moments spent with family, especially during trips to Lake Cumberland with his Aunt Angie, Uncle Gabe, and cousins, Chance and Storm. An avid lover of nature, Jake relished outdoor adventures and possessed an incredible, infectious laugh that lit up any room.

Jake was truly an old soul with wisdom beyond his years. His profound insights and timeless wisdom left a lasting impression on everyone he encountered. He gravitated towards other old souls, finding comfort and connection with “the tribe” – his mother’s closest friends, who shared his affinity for deep conversations and contemplative moments.

Jake leaves behind cherished memories with his parents, Joshua M. (Natasha) Richman (Kokomo, In) and Laura L. (Jeremy) Hepler (Bourbon, In); his brother, Lucas Richman; sister, Lyndsey Richman; step-siblings, Kaylee Elshire, Beau Hepler, and Emma Hepler; niece, Hadley Sue Hepler; maternal grandparents, Lawrence and Sharon Foster and Devon Hepler, paternal grandparents, Ronald and Elizabeth Richman; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He is preceded in death by his brother, Ethan Michael Richman; Uncle, Brandon Lamar Hepler; and Grandmother, Dawn Ann Hepler.
