Dick Spadaro shop closed
 

I talked to Bill ,Dick's assistant last Thursday and he said that this past Friday 10-4-14 will be the last day open of Dick's shop.
If fact it is the last day of Bill's employment with Dick .He said Dick is still in the hospital & failing.
I have great respect for Dick & I can honestly say they ( both Dick & Bill have treated me very well) over the years . Their knowledge will be greatly missed . Good luck to both of them
Bill

Very sad to hear this. The whole thing about Dick's health is very sad. He used to be a very active member of this forum.

Mart.

Coop- I think everyone understands what's going on, but No one wants to admit or say what the ultimate results may be.......

Very sad situation. Both Dick and Bill would go to great lengths to take care of their customers. Good people like them are rare these days. I'll miss them both. Ray

I'm sure Bader was looking at this as "another shop closing"...not a update on someones health.

Visited with Bill recently and it was going one of the most difficult things he has ever done to close the shop for good. Dick and Bill had worked very closely together for a long time. Bill had to take opportunity when it was there, so closing was inevitable. Short of a miracle Dick will not be returning. He was a good friend who visited my shop many times and bought product from me even though I was in the midwest. I will miss my visits with Dick and Bill. We can only wish Bill the best and pray for Dick.

Its always the good ones that go, Dick is better than good - he's the best.
Let it be brief.
