“I’m just ready. Mentally, I feel it is right. I’m not upset with anyone, and my last two years with the department have been extremely positive,” said retiring Quincy Fire Chief Howard “Bubba” Smith. He was talking about his retirement, after 32 years, with the city of Quincy as a public safety officer and a firefighter.
Smith’s first job with the city really began as a teenager when he was a lifeguard at the Jackson Heights pool.
