Richard is a Falls Church City resident who spent most of his career working at a laboratory in Washington, DC. When he joined the FCVFD as an administrative member in 2018, he managed the children’s birthday parties that we hosted on most weekends in our station’s meeting hall. He also served as a trustee from 2019–2021.
Richard has been the department’s secretary since 2019. He is honored to be an officer, but he thinks it’s silly to write about himself in the third person. He’s a good example of the type of person you wouldn’t expect to find among the heroes who work at the firehouse, and he basks in the halo effect that they impart.
