I just finished reading an exchange between Dick and myself (and others, too) as a result of some information I had been searching for. ('Sorry for ending the sentence with a preposition, Dick.)

Jeez, I miss him!

When I was a teenager he was at a lot of magic events around the area we both lived. Seems like he was always at Abbott Get Togethers. I saw him perform a few times. He was a school show guy forever, his book is good.

I only knew him from his posts and PM's here on the Café. A generous man with a wealth of pro experience with a genuine desire to pass on his knowledge to anyone who wanted and was willing to learn. Such a shame he's no longer with us.

Very sad to hear this. I thought something might be wrong because he usually responded quick in private messages. I am really bummed I didn't visit his this summer when he opened his home.

I realised when dropping by here tonight just how much I miss his presence here. What a spirit the man had!

RIP, Dick.

My post from the thread in "Looking After Our Own":

I've only just now happened across this thread by chance and learnt of Dick's passing. How terribly, terribly sad.

Dick was one of the first people to engage with me on this forum. He was very helpful and kind to me and he even sent me a letter containing a photocopied excerpt from his book, detailing his excellent Card To Pocket routine. He flatly refused any payment, even to cover postage, because in his words "it's a small price to pay for people to say nice things about me!". The letter, in its original envelope complete with "rabbit out of a hat" postage stamp and "Dick Oslund, Magician" rubber stamp, has stood proudly on display on my magic shelf since I received it. I shall now treasure it even more.

I didn't know you for very long, Dick, but thanks. You made a big impression on me and I'll never forget you.

Bon Voyage, friend.

When dropping by here any time I realize just how much I miss his presence here. (wiping tears)

I just read this , I am shocked. When I use to spend time on the Café and ask questions Dick always shared his wisdom. He even mailed me his silk blow tube to keep absolutely free... I offered to pay for it or atleast cover the shipping costs and said “all I ask is that you use it.”...Dick was a tremendous wealth of knowledge. I never had the honor to meet him but always wanted to thank him in person and shake his hand. Rest In Piece 🙏
