It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of Dr. Richard Schwartz. He died on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at home with his loving family by his side.
Dr. Schwartz was a physician for more than 43 years and served the Northern Virginia and Vienna area for more than 25 years. We here at Advanced Pediatrics owe an enormous debt of gratitude to this brilliant and generous man. He not only built a home for us here, but has been instrumental in the professional growth of so many of us. He is that little voice inside our heads urging us to do more, to do better. He was truly one of a kind.
Funeral services will be held at Arlington National Cemetery on Tuesday, June 13th at 2 pm. Per Arlington Cemetery regulations, attendees should arrive by 1:15 pm. Upon arrival, you will be directed to the Administration Building. A reception will follow the services at the Spates Club on the Fort Myer Military Base from 3 pm to 5:30 pm. His family would be honored to have colleagues, patients and their families in attendance at both events.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to the medical charity of your choice. Condolences can be sent to the office or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
