IN MEMORY OF DickyD
« on: December 15, 2012, 09:31:56 AM »

I am very sad today as I have just lost a good friend and we all have.   Sadly this morning after chest complications Richard died this morning - our thoughts are with Gillian his dear wife and family at this sad time.   I know we will all miss him and this forum will not be the same somehow without him.
 
RIP my dear friend.    I shall miss talking to you.
John

Richard was a man who could never resist tweaking the lion's tail just to see what would happen! Sometimes this could backfire spectacularly as certain prematurely grey moderators will attest. I do wonder if his tilts against 'authority' were partly due to frustration caused by his dreadfully debilitating medical condition. He usually presented a light hearted face to the Forum but it must have been very difficult for him and I think he was very brave knowing that his days were numbered. He and I had our disagreements but we also helped each other out and I'm still on his mailing list!

There was however the other Dicky D who would cheerfully spend hours helping out both new and established members and researching obscure information on their behalf which enabled them to make the most of their respective model boating projects. The many kits he built gave him a great deal of practical experience in putting them together and he was always generous in sharing this with others building the same models. He was also a mine of information on the various techniques we use in this hobby. As such he was a huge asset to this Forum. I think this is the Dicky D we will all wish to remember. Richard was one of the original Mayhemers and his loss is indeed a sad one.

As others have said, I think we all owe a great deal to Gillian who made it possible for Richard to continue modelling and posting long after most of us would probably have given up. Our thoughts are very much with her too.

 That is sad news, really sad.

 We're missing a very old friend from the Forum today, tempestuous sometime but without doubt,
  one of Mayhem frantically loyal members.


 My most sincere and heartfelt condolences to all the family.

Will be sadly missed by all the members of jersey model boats.
