With a heavy heart and sad news...Puterdude has passed on
I just received a call from Linda telling me that my good friend and fishing buddy Dick passed away last night. I know he was feeling ill the past few days but never expected this.
Goodbye dear friend and may you find that special saugeye spot in the great lake beyond.
Thanks to Dad for teaching me how to fish

It's with SHOCK and Saddness that I send my condolences to his family! Our prayers will be in his honor......may his family be blessed with Peace and the Knowledge that he was a Special friend to many! Godspeed my friend!
wow, he and I pm'd a couple times about conditions and strategy, always very cordial and gave me some really good pointers. he was definitely a guy I would've liked to have met in person. rest in peace Puterdude.
What a shock! I never had the honor of meeting Dick but I have worked with him for a few years now as a moderator and we shared quite a bit of fishing knowledge as well. He fished often at Apple Valley Lake where I do as well and we had hoped to meet up there some time soon. I am sad that I missed that opportunity. My prayers go out to Dick and his family. You will be missed by many.
I never met him personally, but he recently reached out on Super Bowl Sunday and started a little challenge to help contribute to a kid in need. I was touched by his gesture and had a some great exchanges with him. What a kind man.
God bless you puterdude, you are a generous man. I enjoyed your posts and PMs, you will be missed by many. Rest in peace.
Oh my, I wish you were wrong about this. God bless him and his family. And he will be in my prayers during this Lenten season.
We had plans to get together last season. But they were interrupted by work and illness. Then we decided to wait until this season and definitely get together. I am going to dedicate several fish to Puterdude (Dick) this season.
What a shock this is, we were just at the Hoover Seminar manning the OGF booth, he was talking about being short of breath and I urged him to get to the doctor. Linda said he was there yesterday and they checked him out and sent him home.
Another Friend and Fishing Buddy Lost...May God Bless Your Soul
Do what you like, Like what you do.
