Obituary

On the morning of September 5th, 2023, Rich passed away unexpectedly at the age of 76.

Rich was born in Washington, DC, and grew up in Lanham, MD, and Seabrook, MD.  He attended DuVal High School, Lanham, MD, class of 1965.  He graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park where he joined Phi Delta Theta fraternity and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology and Botany.  Upon graduation from Maryland, he began teaching Science at Charles Carroll Middle School for 10 years and Biology at Parkdale High School for 18 years. During his career, he also coached golf, basketball, and baseball.

Rich was an avid Terps fan and followed Orioles baseball all his life. His true passion was fly fishing.  He could often be found fishing on the Potomac River
and the streams of Maryland, North Carolina, as well as Lake Auman, N.C.  He had a deep love for our National Parks, in particular, Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Tetons, Bryce and Zion
National Parks.  He often said, "The outdoors was his church where he could feel God's presence."

On December 23, 1972, after a whirlwind courtship, Rich married Fran White of Arlington, VA. They settled in Olney, MD where they raised
their daughter, Kelly. Shortly after Rich's retirement from Prince George's Co. school system, Rich and Fran moved to Seven Lakes, N.C. where he found the perfect environment to fish and play golf.  In 2002, he was recognized for his contributions as a member and Co-Chairman of the Lake Auman Sports Club.

Rich is survived by his loving wife, Fran, of 50 years.  He is predeceased by his beautiful daughter, Kelly and his parents, Secret Service Agent, William Robert Greer (retired) and
Ethel Oxley Greer.
