Rick Remington wholly embodies the very characteristics that many people seek, especially as they set sights on healthy thoughts in the New Year. Active? Check. Dedicated? Check. Healthy, happy family? Check. Hard worker? Check.
Rick is the embodiment of longevity, passion and loyalty. Having been married to the same “wonderful” lady for 41 years, with 4 children and 14 grandchildren, Rick spends lots of time with his entire family who live in close proximity to him in the Pahrump area.
A Native Oregonian, Rick moved to Pahrump in 1984 and spends his free time, when he is not at work as a General Superintendent at National Security Technologies, LLC, outdoors in the fresh air.
A golfer, fisherman, and consummate grandfather, Rick can be seen reeling one in or cheering on one of his grandchildren at one of their games.
Rick has worked at NSTEC for 31 years, with a typical 16 hour work day supervising other Superintendents and the crafts from the local trade unions on construction projects. Rick occasionally treats himself to a good steak at the Outback Steakhouse.
A loyal contributor, Rick has supported United Way for 18 years through his contributions and community activities. Rick established the Pahrump chapter for Rebuilding Together Pahrump Valley (formally Christmas in April) in 1996. With the support of United Way, he and other volunteers renovated 22 homes in the Pahrump Valley for elderly and low income households. Rick told us that “the incredible change that it has made in these people’s lives is remarkable. Some of them had just about lost all faith that things were ever going to get better in their lives. These renovations have given them hope for a better future and an appreciation for the support from others who care about their wellbeing.” Rick has had the supreme opportunity to see the power of communities giving back and transforming lives.
Every year, Rick stewards his annual workplace campaign by co-sponsoring a Barbeque for the National Securities Technologies employees. He challenges every craft shop to have 100% participation in supporting United Way with their contributions. Those that achieve 100% participation get a free BBQ cooked and served by management. Rick has seen that engagement is a powerful tool. “We have been very successful with this program and have seen a positive impact on contributions to United Way.”
Rick Remington LIVES UNITED in everything he does. A family man, an outdoorsmen, a philanthropist and community advocate, as well as a dedicated employee, this Loyal Contributor seems to have life pretty well figured out. Thank you Rick Remington for all you do!
