Richard Sharp passed away the evening of June 24th in 2014 from Posterior Cortical Atrophy (PCA), a rare form of Alzheimer’s Disease. He fought nobly to help find a cure for future generations. In Rick’s honor his wife, Sherry and family continue to support research to find a cure for this dreadful disease.

“I am committed to fighting Alzheimer’s Disease at any opportunity possible with both my time and resources. Alzheimer’s is relentless, but so am I! I will not give up until either a cure is found or I die trying.”

-Sherry Sharp

The Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease is the most recognized form of dementia and affects almost 6 million Americans. Many live with the disease for as long as 20 years before they are diagnosed. There is no cure.


Rick was a friend, father, husband, dynamic business leader, and philanthropist. He was the former CEO of Circuit City, a founder of CarMax, and more. In 2014 he lost his life to Alzheimer’s.
