Rick Popoff loves boating with his family on Marco’s waters.

Hometown: Dearborn, Mich.

Occupation: Business owner and cosmetologist

Education:Graduate of the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London, England

Family/Marital Status: Married to wife Lisa with three daughters, Sasha, Krista and Nikki and foster dad to Bella and Beau, Sasha’s chihuahua and French mastiff.

How he got to Marco: We came on a vacation in 1984 and never left. We love Marco!

Favorite thing about Marco: Boating on the family boat, because every outing on the water is an adventure. Reading, grilling out, shopping at Island Trends and dining out. All the restaurants on Marco are favorites I cannot think of a bad one.

Lessons learned or sage advice: Even when it’s hard to be nice — be nice. Positive thinking and a positive attitude create a great environment. I believe the children are our future and should be cultivated properly so they can take on the roles of leadership.
