I was saddened to have confirmed today the passing of Dick Beattie, 2x NCAA champ and 2x Big Eight (now Big 12) champ and member of the 1956 Olympic team, who was killed in a car accident at Christmastime 2014 but I only uncovered yesterday by seeing a mention of him in the past tense. Here's a tribute I put together in words and photos...
