My mom named me Richard

YEARS AGO, I WAS interviewing Dick Trickle, and, for some reason, I asked how he got the name Dick Trickle. The name seemed odd to everyone else, but Dick was serious about it.

"My mom named me Richard," he said in his straight forward manner, reminding me that Dick is a nickname for someone named Richard.

Dick was serious that day, but I found him funny over the years. I was saddened a few years ago when I learned of his death.
