Rich has been married to Linda for 47 years. They have both served as Sunday School teachers and Linda is currently the Sunday School superintendent.

Rich currently works for Scarsdale Medical Group in the lab. He is a rabid baseball fan, supporting both New York teams and the Rockland Boulders. He enjoys golf, reading almost everything he can get his hands on, including the Pastor Stephen Grant novels, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas movies, and formulaic romantic comedies.

He also very much enjoys speaking about Jesus and what he has done for him and for all of us. If you’d like to talk, email him at Or call the church office and leave a message. He will get back to you.
