Dick Waterman and I had lunch in Memphis .. I was surprised to learn:
1. The Music Thing was a Fluke ~ (Dick graduated from Boston U with Journalism Degree)
“I’d love to go back to Sports Writing”
2. It was love at first sight: “When I first saw Cinda (Dick was 70/71 and never married) I contacted my sister and said ‘she is the girl I am going to marry’
3. It was after the Korean War ~ Secret Security Clearance as a Cryptographer in the Army during the 1950s
4. Raised in Plymouth, Mass. – Jewish family ~ dad graduated from Harvard and became the ‘small town doctor’
5. Dick is generally called ‘Mr. Waterman, and not ‘Dick’ ~ even by “people I’ve met several times”
6. Dick is open, warm, friendly, honest and ‘a mensch’  – photo by Shein Die FSCN8202_2-2

        not a chassid .. just regular orthodox .. both parents came from Eastern Europe .. his grandma read the Yiddish Forward (Forvertz) – Dick is a ‘yiddisher bocher’ 😀
