Hi I'm Rick

I've lived in many places. I'm a husband, dad, and an optometrist. I live in Alaska. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Having grown up in a large metro area my family and I have moved to various parts of the country, each being smaller than the one before. Each move has given us opportunity to learn new cultures and discover that people are good where ever they may live.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. My mother's family has been in the church since the time of Joseph Smith. My dad's family were converts in England and emigrated to Utah in the early 1900s.

How I live my faith

I am serving as the bishop of the Sitka Ward in Alaska. In the late-70's I served as a missionary to North Carolina. Having 4 children gave me the opportunity to baptize each one of them.
