A Wildwood High School graduate, Rich is a retired police officer: a 26-year veteran of the North Wildwood police force. He’s always got a smile on his face as you walk through the door — but don’t think you’re going to get a fake ID past this guy. He’ll just wrestle you to the ground and make you wish you were never born.
For all of his considerable brawn, he’s truly got a heart of gold. Be sure to say hello the next time you’re down!
