Married since 1990, Sharon and Dick are the owner/operators of the Ebenezer Office of Realty Executives Associates. Sharon is a native Knoxvillian, attending Bearden High School and the University of Tennessee before becoming a Realtor for over 40 years. Dick is originally from Nashville, but after graduating from UT and a full stint in the Air Force, made Knoxville his home.
Real estate is their passion, but they both love sport fishing and spend most of their vacation time in South Florida and the Bahamas trying to catch the big one! Dick has two grown children and 4 beautiful grandchildren…between golf, gardening, friends and family, they have a full and busy life.
Everyone we know has been touched in some way by cancer, but Sharon’s story has driven her to offer as much help to our cause as possible…
“I have a special place in my heart for cancer research. I have lost my closest family to this terrible disease, including both parents and a brother, grandparents & numerous aunts, uncles & cousins. I guess some families are just unlucky, but I will continue to do everything I can to help find a cure and make life easier for those who deal with cancer in their lives.
We love these Survivors and hope to add many more that we can celebrate!”
Dick and Sharon
