Rich was a devout member of Saint Joseph Catholic Church. He was also a member of Covenant Community in Lexington, KY from 1974-1984, then joined the Alleluia Community in Augusta, GA in 1984. He was a Full Covenant member of Alleluia from 1991 until his death. His passion was to be a part of restoring unity in the Body of Christ.

Rich was a devoted husband and father who took great joy in attending the sporting events of his children and grandchildren. Rich took up golf in midlife and enjoyed playing into his 90s. He and his wife enjoyed playing a daily Scrabble or card game together. He was a kind and gentle man who had a keen sense of humor to his last days. He had a passion for bringing Jesus to others. Even in his last days he expressed to all he came in contact with how much Jesus loved them and how much he wanted to be with them in heaven.
