Bruce Loth and his wife, Missy McCool, bought their house in Rappahannock’s Harris Hollow outside of little Washington back in 2002 and soon made it their full time residence. Starting with 25 acres and a garage for the old ski area, they built a barn, added fences, reclaimed pasture, and created a comfortable home and hobby farm. While Missy is a 4th generation native Virginian and a Hokie, Bruce completed high school and received his undergraduate degree in Chapel Hill, North Carolina (therefore a Tar Heel). Together they are raising two children, Henry, 12, and Fiona, 10, both of whom attend Rappahannock County Elementary School, where Missy serves at the vice president of the PTO. Bruce has served as the treasurer of his property owners association for more than 10 years and the Rappahannock County Soccer Association for the past 3. Bruce has worked in the field of information technology since the 1990’s and has been a Senior Analyst with Toyon Research Corporation since 2009. At Toyon he keeps busy as a computer programmer and systems engineer designing software and hardware for building management systems. In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his family (biking, skiing, running, hiking, and gardening), cooking, helping his wife with their horses, hunting in the fall, and walking the woods on his property.
