Richmond Myrick, Jr. was a native of Marianna, FL born to the late Richmond Myrick, Sr. and Linnie B. (Williams) Myrick.  He was educated in the public school system of Hillsborough County, where he graduated from Middleton High School.

Richmond loved music, he loved to play it, sing it, hear it, dance to it, teach it, and direct it. With his love for music he was able to secure a full 4 year scholarship to Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (FAMU) where he earned a Bachelors in Music in 1970. He later earned a Masters degree in Music from Indiana University in 1976. He completed doctoral work at University of Maryland, along with being hand selected to participate in the Oxford Round table in Oxford, England.

Richmond not only loved music, and his family, but he loved developing the minds of young people and pushing them towards greatness. Richmond retired from Prince George’s County Public Schools. While in Prince George’s County Public Schools he served as the Principal of Largo High School, Greenbelt Middle School, and Nicholas Orem Middle School. He also served as Vice Principal of William Wirt Middle School and Northwestern High School.

Before coming to PGCPS he served as the Director of Bands for Howard University, and University of The District of Columbia (UDC). While at UDC he created the branding and the marching band The Striders. Under his directorship the band recorded two albums. He received several awards and loved the work that he did.  

He leaves to cherish his memory: wife, Stephenia of Laurel, MD; son, Richmond Myrick, III of MD; daughter, Kimberly M. Brown of MD;  granddaughter, Callista N. Brown of MD; two sisters, Priscilla Keith of FL, and Mary L. Gilliard (Thomas) of FL; and a host of other relatives and friends.
