An “honorable and beautiful service for this soldier, planner, farmer,” observed close friend and neighbor Heidi Maeyer, who with numerous other mourners attended Sunday’s funeral for Richard “Dick” McNear at his family’s beloved Greenwood farm in Gid Brown Hollow. An active participant in the Rappahannock community, McNear has left behind a legacy of success both in his personal and professional life.

  1. Dick McNear was a fine and good hearted man, an old school patriot, and
    an accomplished gentleman with a zest for life. I didn’t get to know Dick until the past few
    years, but I enjoyed every minute of his company. Rappahannock has lost a treasure.
