Dick Trickle dies of apparent self-inflicted wound
Please hold off on the TASTELESS jokes
A friend of mine who's friends with Richards Brother Chuck, said Chuck had said Dick was in so much pain he couldn't take it anymore.
A Video nice piece in tribute.
In 2001, Trickle’s granddaughter Nicole Ann Bowman was killed in a car accident in front of East Lincoln High School. She is buried in the cemetery where police found his truck and body Thursday.
Tom Higgins, a longtime Observer racing writer and friend of Trickle’s, said the former race car driver had been distraught after his granddaughter’s death.
“He never, ever got over that,” Higgins said.
