God bless you "Smitty". September 2, Smitty was a great friend and coach. Also to mention a very fun loving fellow whom we shared lots of jolly moments!! Dick contributed tremendously to the sport of Olympic Lifting, developing outstanding champions along the way. I will miss him greatly!! August 31, I knew Smitty through weightlifting.
He always had a smile and nice words for me. He was an important weightlifting personality, while I was merely a fan trying to help out. Yet he always spoke to me as if were his equal. He was one of the nice people and one of the reasons weightlifting continues to be such a large part of my life. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Smitty was a great mentor to my late husband Bob Bednarski. I still have the picture of Bob giving Smitty a "bear" hug after an important win.
You just don't forget those magic moments in one's life. My prayers are with you and your family. God bless. August 30, Bryan n Cindy Firestone. Uncle Richard u will b greatly missed.

Whoever ends up the owner, the company is likely to shift away from consumer PCs and into cloud computing and enterprise markets. Smith counts a half-dozen times the Quest offers topped one another before it became clear that Dell was going to win.
Each time his future would shift from one extreme to another — he was out on the road raising money to put everything behind Quest, and then would be staring at another Dell offer that could essentially put him out of a job.
He's a real human judge. Meanwhile, Smith's attorney, William J. Dreyer of Albany, on Friday asked that the June 28 sentencing be delayed. Dreyer wrote a letter to Hurd saying there is not enough information available from the government or a federal receiver to accurately calculate the losses to victims. He said it will be a "large undertaking" to establish cash flows for each of the trusts and operating companies that were embroiled in the criminal case and also to determine the amount of back taxes owed by David and Lynn Smith.
Also, Smith was acquitted on 14 of the 29 counts he faced, and Dreyer told the judge that makes "a proper calculation of the fraud amount the more challenging. Hurd has not ruled on the request. Jones said he intends to file a similar motion Tuesday asking for McGinn's sentencing also to be delayed.One of the last sessions that Walter cut while living in the Bay Area, before his recent relocation to Brooklyn, was this power trio with Smith and reedman Vinny Golia, Grosses Messer ("Large Knives"). Golia's recordings of late have tended to focus on spare, moody chamber improvisation or huffing explorations of breath's lower depths.
