Hi I'm Richard

I am a husband and a father (2 on earth 1 in back in heaven). I am a Cornell graduate. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a wonderful wife, two girls and a little boy who went back to heaven. I am a farmer. I work with fruit trees, apple rootstocks to be specific. I love it so much I got a masters from Cornell University with my thesis based on rootstock production. I love music. I play the guitar. I also enjoy backpacking and climbing mountains.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. I served a 2 year mission in Lima Peru. during that time I learned the meaning of love. Our Father in heaven loves each of us so much. We are his children and he wants us to be happy. I learned to love others while in Peru regardless of race, social status, etc. The church helps me to be a better husband and father.

How I live my faith

I serve as the elder's quorum president. I try to be a good man and an example at my work.
