Richard D. McLeron, retired director of internal audit, died June 3 in Hospice Buffalo, Cheektowaga, after a long illness. He was 75.

A native of Lancaster, McLeron served in the Army and was based in Europe from 1945-47, attaining the rank of sergeant and becoming an expert machine gunner.

He graduated from UB with a bachelor's degree in accounting in 1951. After joining the university's professional staff in 1961, he established and directed the internal auditing system that the then-private University of Buffalo needed to develop as part of its merger with the State University of New York system.

He was a member of Toastmasters, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants, the Institute of Internal Auditors and the Association of College and University Auditors.

McLeron retired in 1991 and was an active member of the Emeritus Center and its REV-UP volunteer group until his death.
