Longtime Rowley Properties executive Richard Symms retired Sept. 1 after 44 years as a leader at the Issaquah-based company.
Symms, as president and board member, served as a key component in Rowley Properties’ evolution.
“Rowley Properties was blessed with Richard Symms’ capable, caring and dependable leadership to do whatever needed to be done over the years,” CEO Kari Magill said in a statement.
Symms worked as a teacher in the Issaquah School District before joining Rowley Properties founder George Rowley Sr. to sell houses on Squak Mountain.
Residents can honor Symms by sending a 4-by-6-inch note card with thoughts or a story to Rowley Properties, Attn: RSS, 1595 N.W. Gilman Blvd., Suite 1, Issaquah, WA 98027. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 5.
Organizers plan to compile the memories into a book for Symms.
