Interim President Memorialized in Final Farewell

Earlier this month, mourners from across the country gathered at Brookhaven College to celebrate the life of Dr. Richard D. McCrary, former interim president.

The memorial service, held Feb. 2 in the Performance Hall, was a shining testimony of the impact McCrary had on all who knew him – friends, family and coworkers quickly filled the 657-seat auditorium on both the ground and balcony levels.

In the foyer outside the hall, guests watched a photo montage of McCrary’s career and browsed through framed photos that represented nearly every stage of his life.

Speakers included McCrary's friends Mike Irvin, Margaret Bonz and Guy Gooding; Dr. Thom Chesney, president; and Sean McCrary, Richard's son. Each spoke with sincerity of McCrary's love for the District and joked about his drive for perfection, often mentioning his keen sense of humor.

Watch a video of the service.
