Hi, my name is Rich Shea and I am the Grand Knight for St. Gabriel's Knights of Columbus Council 6031. I have been a Knight for eleven years, recruited by Brother Pete Kapitzke, and started my officer roles 5 years ago under PGK Ed Franklin who I thank for motivating me to get more involved with the Knights and I am very proud and humbled that my Brothers have entrusted me with the leadership or our Council.
I will say that my experience with the Knights has been life charging as it has given me the opportunity to develop lifelong friendships with men of the highest character who share my faith and never hesitate to serve and give of themselves. I encourage any Catholic man out there that is looking for a way to live their Faith supported by men who have a similar desire to become a Knight, I GUARANTEE you will be very happy you did!
Personally, I have been blessed with a wife of 32 years, three wonderful children, two outstanding sons in law and a Mother in Law that knows no equal! I am a big San Diego State fan (and alum), enjoy working out, snow skiing and water activities and serve on the Executive Board for Boys and Girls Club of Greater San Diego and as Chair of the Mountain Shadows Support Group Board.
