I also miss my old buddy Dick, when he was barred It kinda soured me on the site.I really miss SJD. He was a one of kind guy. A ton of gamble even in his twilight years. He could drink like a sailor. Lived many years and smoked the whole time. He was built differently as I feel many people born from his time were. So glad to have called him a friend and been on a couple road trips with him. I never got to see Dick play in his prime. I know he was one of the best in the world at one pocket in his day. What I admire about him most was the devoted family man he was who left the game for many years to be a great father and husband. RIP my friend.
You can see his interviews with me on YouTube linked below including Dick talking about Cochran's and many players on that list.
