John Richards Timber Titan Dies at 81

COEUR d’ALENE — John Richards influenced many lives in a profound, positive way.

Not because he was a CEO.

Not because he earned his bachelor’s degree at Stanford.

Not because he held an MBA from Harvard.

“He treated everyone like they were equal or better. I think that’s why he was so loved,” said Joy Richards, John’s wife of 34 years.

John, a former chairman of the Potlatch Corp., died Wednesday at Hospice of North Idaho. He was 81.

He grew up in Hayden Lake, attended Hayden Lake Elementary and graduated from Coeur d’Alene High School.

John came from a family of pioneers in the lumber industry, a family with deep roots in Kootenai County.

For decades, Idaho Forest Industries was the Richards family business, until 2000 when IFI’s three North Idaho sawmills and 89,000 acres of timberland were sold to Stimson Lumber Co.

Tom, John’s twin brother, who also went to Stanford and Harvard, was chairman of IFI at the time of the sale. John had retired a year earlier as chairman of Potlatch Corp.

“Tom and John were best friends,” said Katie Brodie, a longtime family friend and employee of John and Tom’s.

Brodie said John’s path at Potlatch was forged shortly after the brothers graduated from Harvard. John was sent to be in charge of the IFI mill in Fernwood, near St. Maries.

“He loved it. He embraced St. Maries,” Brodie said.

John later began working at St. Maries Plywood, which was then purchased by Potlatch, where John stayed for 29 years, eventually working his way up to CEO.

One of John’s sons, John Smith Richards, who works in the forest industry, but never for his father, came to understand while touring the St. Joe River region with a forester, how sizable his father’s impact was. Along the way, they met a road grader operator.

“John Richards gave me my very first job at Potlatch and I am forever grateful,” the man said.

John Smith and the forester continued on and John Smith had a similar experience with a logger they came across.

“It didn’t matter who I met that day. They all knew who my father was,” John Smith said.

Over and over again he heard men say his father gave them jobs. For some, it was their first job, but many said John Richards gave them jobs when no one else was hiring.

Donnell Porter

Donnell Porter, 67, of Warren died Sunday, July 22, 2018 at Baptist Hospital in North Little Rock. Born May 1, 1951, he was a son of the late Ollie and Priscilla Porter.

His son – Ronald Porter
Step children – Scicily Clary of Monticello, Jason and Justin Clary of Warren.
His siblings – Doristeen Phillips, Carolyn Porter both of Warren and Howard Wilks of Dermott.
A host of other relatives and friends.
