Subject: RE: Obit: Dick Rodgers, FSGW Institution (May 2008)
Tomorrow, Monday May 12, I intend to submit my draft of Dick Rodger's obituary to the Washington Post. Although I hope there will be a memorial service or Open Sing in his honor, so far I don't know of any concrete planning for that, so I intend to not mention it in the obituary. If you want to contact me for any reason, email me at or phone me at 301-565-9137. Here's my draft so far of the obituary for the W. Post: DICK RODGERS (Age 70). Of Laurel, MD, Dick Rodgers died of a heart attack on May 6 at Laurel Regional Hospital. He was born in Youngstown, OH. After finishing military service, he was a member of the Folklore Society of Greater Washington since it was founded in 1964, at times also serving in board positions. As a folk music enthusiast and participant, he sang, and played his hurdy gurdy, guitar, pipes, and fiddle. For more obituary information about him, and friends' comments, see
