I've known Dick since I came to California in 1979, and seen him accompany so many at the Palomino and other folk and country clubs, have socialized with him and so on. He was a fine, tasteful fiddler, and it was sad that he had to give it up because of the carpal tunnel syndrome. He was a gentle, quiet man with a droll sense of humor and had exquisite taste in music and musicians. I learned a lot hearing him say why one reputed guitarist or fiddler was "sloppy" and not as good as the one less celebrated. The last time I saw him, maybe eight months ago, I had been quite ill myself. It was at Viva Fresh, a Mexican restaurant which used to have the best fiddle nights around. He was sitting talking with someone, and we exchanged some talk and he said how much he enjoyed working for (I think it was a copyright company), in Burbank, although he'd given up full-time music.

I still don't know what he died of?

Hi Jan,
I heard of Dick(ie)'s passing after the memorial on the west coast was arranged. I am one of his friends since Jr High school days. I would love to hear from you about the memorial -- who was there, what it was like. Dick was a good friend of mine. Do you know what the cause of his death was? It has bothered me since I heard of his passing (a year after the fact.) Marty (his brother) hasn't written me back or gotten in touch with me. Any light you could shed on his passing might alleviate some of my tears. I miss him so much. Please write. Meg Smith
