SJD was raw earth and could be a p-r-i-c-kly pear at times....and a witty one, at that.

He was the kind of guy I always liked because there was never a need to think, 'gee, I wonder what was on his mind'. You *always* knew with SJD.

Very sorry to hear this news.

Condolences to his family and many friends, and especially to Lenny on the loss of such a dear pal.

RIP SJD.

best,
brian kc

EDIT: Had to redo p-r-i-c-k-ly with hyphens because the anti vulgarity software wouldn't let me type *****ly. I think Dick would have found this funny.

RIP sir, and godspeed. Another of the old guard, gone . Definitely recommend you watch the video, very good. Thankfully we have that now, and can go back and watch these guys.
He was quite the character, and would tear into that ass in a heartbeat, if you didn't see eye to eye. His post will be missed.

I wish I had met San Jose Dick....heard a lot about him when I was a kid.
...I knew a lot of people that he knew....and he had a great rep as a player.
Dick was going to start on me like CJ....and I cut it short...
....I really wish I hadn’t....he was at his most entertaining when he got the bit between his teeth...he would have been great to make a game with....I probably would’ve been
laughing as I went broke.

Dick was born in Canada....about 60 miles from my birth place...but his birth wasn’t
registered till his parents got to Detroit.
....but that still gave him dual citizenship....so I mourn the loss of a fellow Canuck.

God bless you,Richard...and rest in peace


Lionize your game.

I really hate hearing this. Dick was a true person. Said what he thought. A good guy and pretty strong player. Thank you to Lenny for being such a good friend to Dick. And for the videos you made.

Just a shame — the old timers just keep on leaving us.

My thoughts are with his family and friends......

It's sad to hear of any player's passing, I'm sure he'll be missed by his family.

RIP Dick, Listened to the interview . There was an old road horse right there, and a library of pool info that he had gleaned from his time's. . His talking of scuffling around the gulf states brought back a lot of time's also

Sorry to hear it. His last post here was nearly 11 months ago, and I had wondered a few times how he was doing. He certainly added some interest and humor to these environs. Condolences to those who were close to him.

Sad to see another of the players I grew up with die.

Starting to feel like the Lone Ranger.

Dick and I only took one road trip together but he was real fun to be with.

Smart and direct.

I always liked him a lot.

I will miss him and I am sure many others will also.

DAMN Dick!! RIP my friend. Dick said what he meant and meant what he said, which didn't endear him to everyone. But it sure did to a lot of us! Scathing wit and was funny as well. Dick, you'll be missed by many!
