Rick earned his business degree from Morris Harvey College while also working at Raleigh Grocery. He was a Purex soap salesman for the tri-state area. He later established his own grocery business, Rick’s Supermarket in Glen Daniel, in 1979, which is still family owned and operated. Rick served on the Whitesville State Bank Board of Directors and Big Coal River BanCorp. for over 25 years until illness forced him to retire. Rick loved working at his grocery store, working on his farm, tinkering with antique cars and spending time with his bulldogs. Rick enjoyed talking to anyone and everyone and he hardly ever met a stranger. Rick was a lifelong member of the Marsh Fork Presbyterian Church in Dry Creek, WV.
