Al Roberts, RPH

Co-Owner & Pharmacist-In-Charge

I was born in Harrisonburg Virginia in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. Except for a seven year stretch in the 1960’s, my entire life has been spent in the great Commonwealth of Virginia. I have a younger brother and sister. I graduated from Halifax County High, attended the University of Richmond for 2 years, and graduated from the Medical College of Virginia in 1977 with a BS in Pharmacy. I came to Warrenton after graduation and worked at Rhodes Drug Store until it closed at the end of 2005. While working at Rhodes I met Sharon Godfrey who also worked there and we were married in 1979. During this time I also worked on my day off for Mr. Wilbur Heflin and the Remington Drug Company. Most people feel blessed to have one great job but I have been fortunate enough to have two such opportunities with Rhodes and Remington Drug. In 2006 I came to Remington Drug full time. I am a member of two national pharmacy organization, two state pharmacy organizations, I am a supporter of the Fauquier Free Clinic, and a speaker to Cardiac Rehab patients at Fauquier Health Systems Wellness Center. I am also certified to give immunizations such as flu, shingles, and pneumonia. I enjoy working in the yard, football, and bowling. I believe my greatest opportunities to help and educate patients is in a community pharmacy like Remington Drug It is truly a pleasure and a privilege to contribute to the healthcare program of all our patients.

Wilbur Heflin (retired)

I was born in Fredericksburg, Virginia and lived my first 5 years in Richardsville, Virginia before moving to Remington, Virginia. I spent my entire youth in Remington and graduated from Warrenton High School. I studied pharmacy at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, Wyoming and received a BS in Pharmacy in 1961. A brief stent in graduate school at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington led to the purchase of Hodgins Drug Store in Moscow, Idaho which my partner and I had for 10 years. After selling my interest in 1971, I returned to Remington to purchase and operate the Remington Drug Store which was owned by E. H. Ashby, Sr. (my great-uncle). I have operated the pharmacy for the last 43 years. At various times in my career, I have been a Fauquier County Supervisor, a member of the Board of Fauquier Health, Mayor of Remington and have served on numerous public committees and belonged to a number of public organizations. I am married and have 4 grown children.
