Richard Kelleher, a Skidmore maintenance worker from Glens Falls, N.Y., died October 28, 2004. He was 61.
Richard worked in Facilities Services for 18 years. A former military policeman with the US Army in Germany, he began working at Skidmore in 1985 as a custodian. He became a maintenance mechanic in 1989, and five years later became a boiler operator—the position he held until his retirement in 2003.
He served as vice president of Local 200 (SEIU) and was the union’s on-campus chair for 15 years. Described by his Skidmore colleagues as a “real family man,” he was also a skilled handyman who enjoyed remodeling his home and other properties.
Survivors included wife Barbara, four sons, and eight grandchildren.
