Rich attended Seneca Valley High School & Montgomery College. He left college and became a stone mason while he pursued his dream of becoming a public servant in Law Enforcement. After several years, he was asked to join the Louisa County Sherriff's Office in Louisa, VA where he served with the hope of making a difference in people’s lives for the better. Rich had a passion for history and loved researching his family lineage back for generations. He was a diehard Redskins fan, Orioles fan, and loved Nascar. He was a musician who loved his guitars and appreciated all genres of music. Most of all, Rich was a humble man, a man of faith, and he truly loved helping people whenever he could.
