In 1983, he was hired at Fort Hood Civil Service into the Directorate of Engineering and Housing (DEH), later known as the Department of Public Works (DPW), where he eventually worked his way up to the Chief of the Maintenance Division for the entire post. He retired from Civil Service in 2013. Dick's full obituary may be found here: obits.dignitymemorial.com/dignity-memorial/obituary.aspx?n=Richard-Heiges&lc=1796&pid=169962801&mid=5877336
