Richard began his career in October of 1973 at the Smithsonian as a laborer.Since then, he has held numerous positions during his illustrious career, includingbuilding manager and facilities manager, and he retired as the Deputy Director ofthe Office of Facilities Management and Reliability.

When asked what he plans to do with all of his free time, Richardsaid he is looking forward to sleeping in, spending more time with the family, andworking on the farm. He will be truly missed by the Smithsonian.
