In 1962 Dick moved back to Alexandria, where he joined the law firm that became Boothe, Prichard & Dudley, and then McGuire Woods. In the larger community, Dick was involved in both politics and his church. Faith in God was the foundation of his life and a driving force for his love and commitment to his family and community. He served two terms in the Virginia House of Delegates and was chairman of both the Virginia and Alexandria Democratic committees. He was an active member of the Episcopal Church, serving as senior warden of Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill and serving many terms on the vestry.
Dick is survived by his wife of 60 years, Kathleen; their four children including Henry Lee ’87 and Anne ’88; and eight grandchildren.
