Rob Richardson was a cast member of CMT’s show, Trick My Truck.

He passed away on December 7, 2014, of a heart attack at the age of 41. 

Nicknamed Hotwire, because of his electrical skills, he owned Rob’s Audio Solutions in Joplin, Missouri.

His shop was considered one of the best audio installers in the country.

Rob specialized in creating complex designs, which will “jump out and bite you.”

He and close friend, Ryan “Ryno” Templeton were known as Chrome Shop Mafia.

Trick My Truck, which premiered in 2006, became the most popular series in the network after a year. 

The show featured his work where he turned trucks into a tribute to their owners.

He is survived by his wife, Heather and daughters, Makala and Meagan Pippin. 

The funeral was held on December 11, in Simpson Funeral Home Webb City, Missouri.

A scholarship fund was set up for his daughters and his family members requested to make donations instead of sending flowers.
