A Little Bit About me ….

I have been involved in non-profit work for over 32 years in a variety of settings. I am licensed to officiate weddings in Ontario and consider it a great honor to conduct a wedding whenever asked.
A couple’s wedding day is one of the biggest days of their lives so I make sure ceremonies are done with passion and according to the couples preferences.

My Personal Story ….

After moving around a lot, I finally settled in Peterborough where I went to college, met my wife, began working and started a family–we stayed there for 18 years. Since then our journey has taken us to Ottawa, Kitchener and recently Kingston.

My Family ….

My wife Sandra and I have been married for 32 years. We have two adult children who are both married.
We have replaced our children with our cats: Meeko and Simba. They are much quieter and cheaper to raise!

My Life Experience ….

In order to facilitate my vocation I have earned degrees from three schools. I have extensive experience as a college level professor and have travelled to a number of countries to teach.  In recent years I was provincially trained as a Provincial Security & Surveillance Officer and worked for a security company in Kitchener for 7 ½ years while travelling to different venues in South Western Ontario.

My Interests & Passions ….

These include home improvements, cycling, ebay, kijiji, sports (Go Leafs Go!), and coffee.

Why Choose Enduring Promises?

What couples are saying

We were very happy to have Richard officiate our big day. He was very professional and provided us with a lovely ceremony. We could not be happier with him and would recommend his services to another couple looking to tie the knot..
