It is with heavy heart that I announce the passing of one of our moderators Richard King. Richard started his mod duties here on DBSTalk back in September of 2003. He was both a good friend and a mentor. I will miss him terribly but take comfort in the fact that he is now in a better place. Goodbye Richard and God speed.

I know that this was not unexpected. Richard started making plans quite some time ago but of course, one always holds out hope.

My friend Richard was always in good spirits, every time I talked or corresponded with him, and he was a strong influence on me in my early days as a staff member. There's a lot about DBSTALK that bears his personal stamp, and I am pleased and honored to have known him.

Sad news, indeed! I'd missed his presence here on DBSTALK for some time -- his talk about recording he'd done, his problems with his rentals, his love of photography and his many undertakings, not the least of which was his presence here. He became a friend to all who exchanged posts with him. RIP, Richard! :crying_sa

I am stunned! Richard was a good friend and the only DBSTalk member I have personally met. In fact, toward the end of his infamous "world tour" back in 03 or 04(?) he came out of his way to my home to meet and check me out ;). We went to lunch together that day and we PM'd a lot and talked by phone afterward until the past year or so since he disclosed the tumor.

Richard King was truly one of the good guys, a true friend to me, and I'm sure, of many others. He will be missed. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family.

May you rest in peace, rking401, may you rest in peace.

I never met the Gentle Man called Richard but I am impressed by the thoughtful and caring sentiments of so many here. It alone says it all.

R.I.P. Richard King

I am so sad to hear about Richard's passing. I did not have the pleasure of meeting him, but over the years, I followed his posts and exchanged many PM's with him. He was truly a great individual and you would always be prepared to smile when reading his posts.
