a decade



June 2024 marked a decade since Alzheimer’s disease took the life of my husband and best friend from the age of sixteen. Richard lost his battle with this rare form of Alzheimer’s disease, Posterior Cortical Atrophy (PCA) on June 24, 2014.

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.
