As so many people have pointed out, Dick was an off-key singer and instrumentalist, but he was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic that you had to admire him. He was also enthusiastic about other people. He seemed to like everyone and make them feel at home. His knowledge about songs often made me understand and like them better. I'm sorry I never saw him dance.

Bob, thanks for starting this thread and telling us so much about him. I hadn't known that he did so much to support the cause of folk music many years ago.

Many of us will miss him. That in itself shows what an unusually well liked and respected person he was.

I haven't heard anything about a service for him.
