Richard Cropped

Richard was born and raised in Oklahoma (and is a diehard Oklahoma STATE fan), worked in Germany for about five years, and has lived in Virginia since 2000. Here, he met the love of his life and they began their life odyssey in 2001. Richard and his wife Deb live on a “farmette” they call Peaceful Point Farm where they raise a variety of barnyard pets. They enjoy getting to spend time with their three grandchildren.

Richard and Deb are members of Rehoboth United Methodist Church.  He has greatly enjoyed serving on mission trips and on numerous Emmaus and Epiphany teams.  Professionally, he is a retired faculty member having taught sociology and psychology in community colleges for more than twenty-five years.
