Story by Donna Bigler

Washington Adventist University (WAU) faculty, staff, students, alumni, family and friends are heartbroken to learn of Richardson Chatham’s passing. On Sunday, January 22, 2017, Chatham passed away in his sleep. He was 24 years old.  

Chatham was an adjunct professor for WAU’s traditional program and a teaching assistant and tutor for the Religion Department.  He was a 2013 alumnus of WAU and was pursuing a master’s degree in Religion at WAU's School of Graduate and Professional Studies. 

He was an active member of the Chesapeake Conference's Spencerville church in Silver Spring, Md.. Chatham is survived by his parents, Delvin and Annette Chatham. Please keep the Chatham family in your prayers as they grieve. We extend the deepest condolences to the Chatham family and friends. He will truly be missed.

WAU had a special moment of memory for Chatham today, January 23, 2017 during Chapel at Sligo Seventh-day Adventist Church.
