Dickie Colburn, 75, succumbs to injuries after accident

Quote from Roy Dunn publisher

"The staff of The Record Newspapers is deeply saddened by the tragic death of our popular fishing columnist, longtime fishing guide, Dickie Colburn."

On a personal note, "I didn't want to believe the news that Dickie had left us. He's the last person I would have believed would have lost his life due to an accident. As a guide he was always very cautious and alert. I had trouble going to sleep and I woke up with him on my mind. He was easy to laugh, it came natural with him. My sincere condolences to his family and many followers, who looked forward each week to reading his

column, always different and special. His personality revealed itself in his writing. It was like visiting with an old uncle about that last fishing trip. He will be missed by many."
