Richard Shannon attended Albion College in Albion, Michigan from 1961-1963 then joining the Air Force from 1968-1972 with rank E 4 with a top-secret security clearance. After the Air Force, he went to work for General Electric in their Medical Systems Division in sales and marketing. From there, he moved on to Siemens Corporation and their Dental Systems Division in Virginia. He found VA to be a great place to raise his three sons. Richard loved to travel, and his work sent him to many offshore locations. His other interests include photography and creating new culinary specialties. He was known for being very generous with his family and friends, and a noted raconteur with a wonderful voice.
