Mr. Rich Grove
My Name is William “Rich” Grove. I grew up in northern Virginia. Proud to be a second-generation Marine Corps veteran. I graduated from Spartan School of Aeronautics with my Diploma in Aviation Maintenance. I have worked in the Aviation Industry for both small and large Airlines as a Flight line mechanic. I worked in the Luxury Automotive Industry as a technician. After moving down to Florida in 2016 I returned to Aviation as a Repair Station Repairman on aircraft oxygen systems.
I currently reside in Naples with my wonderful wife of 20 years, and our Golden retriever “Nugget”. We both enjoy an active lifestyle participating in several sports and riding motorcycles. We have been volunteering and Coaching with the Collier County Special Olympics for the last 5 years. I’m both excited and very grateful to have the opportunity to join the LWTC team.
