Wow! What a shocker to log on tonight and read this news. As one of the newbies Dick always had time for me and my silly questions. One time I told him my dad's name was Dick also.....you know where that lead to.
I am going to miss his little DB'isms each day. What a huge loss.
Great guy and even better friend.
God Bless Dick and Prayers to Dick's family.
Mike

I can't believe it either, just had the emails here on a couple subjects. I know many people had strong feelings one way or another, but he was always extremely helpful to myself and friends of mine. As said a wealth of info that most of us will never know or what to know.
Man I just can't believe it !!
I am so sorry and hope that his family will take hart in the fact that so many of us appreciated him and his help.

It just never seems real, or even possible, when this sort of thing happens. Dick was such a lively character....a significant influence to the Old Gas family.

wow... literally thought it was a joke until about the third post. sad to hear the news. I literally exchanged 10 PMs with him just yesterday. Sorry I never got to meet him in person... always enjoyed the chats we were able to have thru this site. He answered a lot of my first questions when I started getting into pumps. very sorry to hear the news
