KANSAS CITY, MO – L.C. Richardson, owner of the well-known LC’s Bar-B-Q restaurant in Kansas City, died this week.
Richardson’s granddaughter wrote on the restaurant’s website that Richardson died at the age of 86.
She did not give a cause of death.
Richardson founded the restaurant in 1986 near the Truman Sports Complex, and it became a popular spot for diners going to Royals and Chiefs games, and for barbecue fans across the region.
The restaurant announced a public viewing will be held on Feb. 27, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Watkins Heritage Chapel in Kansas City.
The family plans a private funeral service in Jackson, Mississippi, at a later date.
