To My Father's Loyal Blog Readers

This is Craig, Richards son. Richard passed away this morning unexpectedly. I know that he really appreciated this community and considered many of you friends so I thought it would be important to let you all know. Since his retirement this blog was very important to him and his life long passion of cooking. I am sorry to have to tell you all this in this fashion. He was loved and will be missed. Thank you all for being his friends and inspiring him to continue cooking right up till the end.

My thoughts and prayers are with you - I just recently got to know your dad some via this blog and appreciated his friendship.

I am sorry for your loss - so unexpected... If nothing else, he passed on while on a high from placing well during the BBQ contest. He will be fondly remembered.

Akelamalu said...

OMG I am so, so, sorry to hear this - I just can't believe it.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.

Buff will be sadly missed in the blogosphere and fondly remembered. What will we do without his fabulous recipes? :(

I am sending Reiki to Buff to help ease his journey home and to your family to help ease the grief. I hope you feel able to accept it. x

I am so terribly sorry! He will be missed very much around here and I will pray for you at this horribly difficult time.

I'm so glad he won that contest this last weekend. What a legacy he leaves.

God bless you and comfort you and your entire family at this time.

Sending prayers for your family. His enthusiasm for life and cooking was evident and the way he encouraged others was so steady. We will miss him, as will you. God bless.

otin said...

I am terribly saddened and am in shock.

Blogs are visited not for their content but more for the personality of the person behind the blog. Your father had a lot of personality and really was a star around the blog community. I will miss him.

I will say a prayer for him and your family.

Marjie said...

Oh, Craig, you made me cry. I am so sorry for your loss. That Dick touched the lives of so many of us who never even met him is a testament to an outstanding man. He will be missed by more than just you, his beloved family, of whom he wrote often and with pride.

Mona said...

NO! Please tell me that this is a joke!!!

This is a nightmare, this cannot be happening..

Buf cannot go just like that!

Mona said...

How can buf go just like that? he was not ill! He did not say anything about being ill! It can't be true!

Jen said...

OMG, I can't believe this. I am so sorry for your loss. he was a greta guy and will truly be missed.

He was and always will be loved!

My sincere condolences. I enjoyed your father's blog and his sense of humour. This will be a huge void for all of us.

snowelf said...

Craig,

I am so, so sorry for your loss. Much love to you and your family. Your dad always refered to me as his "adopted neice" and I just loved him so much. He always knew how to make me smile and was always full of so much practical widsom and heart. I've learned so much from him in the few years I've known him and I will always carry a bit of him with me. He will truly be missed.

Chef E said...

OH my gosh, this comes at a great shock to me! I really enjoyed all the help your dad gave me this past year on some of his favorite foods and such. He and your family are in my prayers...

Barbara said...

Craig:

Please accept my deepest sympathy on your loss and please extend my sympathy to your mother and the other members of your family.
Dick was a part of all our lives and he will be missed terribly.

I used to be a fellow Michigander so we had lots of back and forth about that. His cooking, his humor and kindness will be remembered forever.

You are very kind to let us know. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Barbara

Chris said...

Craig,

I never met BD in real life but felt like I knew him very well from the past two years. He was always willing to offer a tip, encouragement or even a good razzing if you needed it.

BD thought so highly of you and his family. It seems he was always trying to work a mention of them into his posts, it was obvious he cherished you all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Farewell BD. You will be missed.

Christiejolu said...

I am so sorry for your loss....

doggybloggy said...

oh dear Buff - why didnt I pick up the phone yesterday - it was raining and we were outside trying to pack up the stuff from a tag sale we were having and I knew I could talk to you later - I will miss our foodie/bloggie conversations you are and always will be a bright shining star in my little galaxy -

The Blonde Duck said...

I'm so sorry. That's terrible.

Queenie said...

To all of Buffs family, I stopped blogging a year ago, but often thought of my mentor with my cooking, facing life, and learning how to give a quick sarcastic remark when the time was appropriate. I learnt on Face book of your very sad lost,please accept my condolences. Know he was loved, and admired by many. I will never forget him, thank you for sharing him with us.
Buff if you can hear me, thanks for being there... Queenie.XXXXXXX

ciara said...

so sorry for your loss. i only came by to your dad's blog a handful of times, so i didn't get to know him as well as the others had. i do know that he did have a great affect on those who did. they loved and respected him more than you could know. you, your family and friends are in my thoughts.

Rachel Cotterill said...

I'm so sorry to hear this. My sympathies are with your family, and I appreciate your taking the time to let us know (at what must be a difficult time for you).

MarmiteToasty said...

Ive come back over to see if I was dreaming and that this is all a nightmare, but I see its for real... I just cant stop crying for our beautiful Buff, who gave so much to so many, in time and thought and laughter and nagging and a private email of encouragement and sometimes even a sarcastic remark to make one see sense.....

Im with Queenie... fanks for being there Buff and being YOU.... I am so gonna miss you, you old bloody git......

Pat Tillett said...

I'm so sorry for your loss! Your dad was one of those guys that made blogging worthwhile. I wouldn't even try to compare how I'm feeling, to what your family must be going through, but I promise you, me and a lot of folks like me are sharing your grief..

RIP Richard...

jolie-jordan said...

Dear Craig and Family,

Thank you for taking the time to let us blogger's know of your Dad's passing. I am so very, very sorry for your loss....for our loss. He has been a bright star in my life not just here with his wonderful blog but also with the comments he has made on my blog.
Please know he will be remembered with great fondness by so many people. He will be so missed. Please keep his blog up for awhile so his loyal followers can come back from time to time just to read his words again.
We shared this aging and losing friends just recently and here it is. Tears in my eyes for the loss of another friend. We never met in person yet he was a loved friend.
Heaven will get a great cook and a loving man.
So shocked...so sorry. God be with your family double-time right now.

Jolie

RIP Buff...Richard

Respectfully Yours said...

Wow, please take care dear. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. God Bless

LaDivaCucina said...

Craig, it was so nice of you to let us know, in spite of your deep loss. Thank you.

I was just getting used to your dad coming by my blog and leaving his two cent's worth and I always welcomed it. He's a fellow Michigander, as am I, and I liked that.

I'm sorry for your loss and offer my deepest condolences. I didn't know your dad well, but I sure did like him.

pinknest said...

i am shocked and so saddened to hear this, and am terribly sorry for your loss. my thoughts are with you. you will be missed.

intuitive eggplant said...

Oh, no. I am so stunned and saddened by this news. Please know I send my deepest condolences to you and the rest of your family.

I've gotten to know B.D. only in the last few months and always enjoyed his blog and his enthusiasm for cooking. So glad he did so well at last weekend's bbq cookoff and was able to share that news with us on his blog. He participated in this month's Culinary Smackdown, for which I am the host. I will definitely acknowledge his fine contributions in my results post tomorrow night. He will be missed.

Tracie said...

I'm so sorry for your loss. He was always so kind and a wonderful presence in the blogging community. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

i always thought somehow we would all get together, doggy bloggy and a few of us. your dad had such kind words for me and my daughter during a big crisis. his stories of his kids and his animals always made me smile. debby in california

Tangled Noodle said...

Craig,

My deepest condolences to you and your family. I only knew your father through his comments on others' blogs that we both visited. I enjoyed reading his humorous and supportive comments almost as much as the posts themselves!

Even if my acquaintance with him was so small, it is obvious that he was well-loved and admired by so many and I consider it a pleasure and a privilege to have known him even for a little bit.

Tracey

sage said...

My condolences to you, Craig, and your family. I was shocked. I was hoping to run into your dad one day at a West Michigan chili-cookoff. I am on vacation and wasn't reading blogs, but your tag line caught my attention and I'm glad I came by. I will miss your dad's commments and his recipes.

Vickie said...

Craig - I'm so sorry for your loss. I only "know" your father through the blogs, but loved his sage wisdom and no nonsense style of writing. He seemed like a very kind man who loved his family. He will be missed!

The Good Cook said...

Craig,

Please accept my sincere condolences and please extend these to the rest of your family. I only 'knew' your dad through his blog - but came to like him, admire him and look forward to his postings. I am so, so sorry for your lose - and ours - the blogging community. Please know that I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers as you navigate the difficult waters ahead.

And give you dad a little whisper for me - tell him to keep a space open for me in the 'next' kitchen. Some day we'll all cook up something special together.

Craig,

I send you my sincerest condolences on the loss of your father. I am so saddened to read this. We all loved your father's blog and enjoy his entries and I looked forward to his comments on mine. He always offered encourage and had a terrific sense of humor.

I'll keep you, your mother and brother in my prayers.

KB said...

I'm shocked. Thank you for taking the time to let us know at this difficult time. I will miss his sense of humour and the way he really did care about us all in blog land. Won't be the same around here without him. My thoughts are with you and the family.

highlandsranchfoodie said...

My sympathy to your family. BD's blog was one of the first food blogs I found when I first started my blog. BD started commenting on my posts almost immediately and continued to leave a comment for every one of my posts. I could always count on hearing from him. He was so encouraging and kept me going when I thought nobody else was out there. This is a big loss for our little foodie community. I'm so saddened.

Kris said...

I am shocked and saddened like everyone else. All my best to you, the family, and his lovely spirit!

Gloria said...

I was thinking and is so hard to believe for me. I know is true Craig but really Im so sad. Today I think all day in im. I love his ssense of humor and his love for cook and always kidding! Yes I will miss you a lot daer Bauffalo, to all family I send you again a lot of huggs and blessings, x Gloria

PattiKen said...

Craig, I'm so sorry for your loss. Thank you for letting us know. I enjoyed reading about your father's adventures with food. I know he will be missed by many.

Much love to your family--he talked about you guys all the time :)

He will be missed, from all of us and especially as a Michigan blogger.

I've finally posted the results of this month's Culinary Smackdown, along with an appreciation of Buffalo Dick, who entered this month's contest. I still can't get over the fact he's gone. To his family, I hope you're remembering all the good times with him. I will always remember him fondly.

tamilyn said...

Craig,
Thank you for letting BD readers know what has happened. Like many others, I enjoyed coming here and reading his tales and enjoyed his comments on my posts.

May you and your Mom and brother take some comfort in knowing that around the globe, he touched many lives over the internet. Even though many of us never met in person, we learn about them through food and stories told.

God Speed,
Tami

Jeff B said...

Like so many others have said, I'm both shocked and truly saddened by this news.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Your father was a wonderful man to get to know. I'll miss his friendship.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Your father touched many lives via his blog. I'll never forget the time he mailed me one of his famous chili t-shirts and I posted a photo of myself wearing. He got a kick out of that...and I had so much fun with it. :)

God bless you and your family and know that your father will be missed by many people.

Mona said...

Craig,

When my husband died a few months ago, Buf was so kind. He was concerned and only had solace and kind words to offer. On one occasion he said " I can't imagine what it must feel to lose a spouse!" Of course now he will never know, and I don't know whether it is good news or bad. But those very words make me think of your mother and I can very well imagine what she must be going through, since she spent a major part of her life with one so loving and caring.
My deepest condolence to you all specially to your mom. Tell her that Buf always told us how much he admired and loved her. She was everything to him!

jolie-jordan said...

Ah Buff...where have you gone? I keep coming back every day like I think you will somehow magically have a new recipe posted. What in the world will your wife ever eat now? I feel so bad for her and your' sons, family and friends. I feel so sad for all of us in the blog family that miss you too.
Rest well my friend. Rest well.

I loved you looong time, Buffalodick. God bless you, those who you loved, and enjoyed life with.

Craig,
I'm so very sorry to hear this news. Our prayers go out to you and your family. When I would have dry spells in blogging, it was Buffalodick who kept checking up on me to see if I was OK. That meant a lot. We lost a good man. A caring man. I will miss him too.

I'm so stunned and saddened to hear this news. I always enjoyed finding out what Buff was up to each night and can honestly say he inspired me on many occasions in the kitchen. I will miss reading his delightful blogs and witty comments on my own. You could tell he genuinely enjoyed reading and making blog friends in this community. I don't have to tell you again he will be missed. I am very, very sorry for your tremendous loss.

CraigNutzzz said...

Thank you all for your comments and prayers over the last week. My father was laid to rest on Friday, the minister did a fine job reflecting my fathers personality and accomplishments. We printed out all the comments that you made and created a folder that was read by many at the visitation. It was very moving for those that looked it over. I plan on going through all of my fathers posts and creating a cookbook to carry on his name and his passion for cooking. I also plan on continuing his teams presence at the State of Michigan BBQ cook off, as I helped him with it the past 3 years and feel like I can do him justice. Thank you all for being his friend.

I'm late in finding out, but I was counting on reading him for many more years. I'm so sad and sorry.

Oh I am heartbroken for your family. My father-in-law passed away August 7th so I can sense your pain. I am so so so sorry for your loss. May God Bless You All!

Jen said...

I am embarrassed that it took me so long to find your message. I've been traveling a lot and now that I'm home for good, I came to check on my blogger friend, Buffalodick, who I haven't heard from in a while. This news truly saddens me. He was one of my first followers. I considered him a friend and he will be missed.

Lulda Casadaga said...

Sorry, it took way to long to come here and leave a message. I'm sorry for your lose and I send your family my sympathy. Your dad was one of the first to acknowledge my blog and I loved visiting him from time to time, I loved to just see what was cookin. I swear some days I could smell those creations and other days I cursed him for making it all look so damned good.

Craig, your dad will be missed by so many. I'm just one...Linda(Lulda)

Green-Eyed Momster said...

Craig, I'm in shock. I don't know how I missed this post.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I have been wondering why he hasn't been leaving me comments.

I've been thinking about him but my life is extremely busy right now.

Your dad will be and is missed by many.

Kind regards,
Tracey

OHN said...

I wondered what was up since I hadn't seen a post in a bit, came here just now and found out about your loss.

I am so sorry.

Having lost my mom suddenly and unexpectedly, I know how hard it is.

Please know that he entertained all of us and we were all a little bit jealous that we could never actually taste any of his beloved cooking :)

Please take care.

forever lost said...

craig,
I am so taken aback! I had taken moved away from blogging for a while and today he was the first guy I was going to leave a note with.
I know how much you and his family and friends miss him! He could leave a note on my entry that would make me smile for the day!
I am so so sorry for your loss, thank you for letting us know.

forever lost said...

I felt such a sorrow this morning, and had 2 of our adult children coming over for dinner tonight. I flipped thru Buff's earlier posts and saw the pasta salad he had posted. My family LOVES Pasta salad so I put it together.. SO many umms at the table that I could hardly wait to share who had given me the recipe. "Mom, I remember his name." I felt I just had to share our dinner with all those that knew him and his family!

MarmiteToasty said...

Oh Jebus - I miss Buff so very very much..... I came to ask him to take care of my cat Ambrose who a few hours ago climbed onto my bed and snuggled into my duvet and died, she was 15 and very special to me....

I miss you Buff please look out of my special girl when she gets to you....

JUST now came here to check on your Dad. I've been out of the loop for some time, and this is what I get. I am saddened by the loss of yet another amazing man. Your Father was one magical and amazing soul. I am blessed for the time he was 'in my life'.

Be well.

Just found out....I am so shocked....I'm going to miss him...
My sympathies and peace to your family...

I hadn't read Dick's blog in a while and just now read this. He used to work for a steel vendor and we were his customer. He'd take me out for lunches at the best restaurants in town and even after he retired and I got laid off, he made a point of keeping in touch.

He was the sweetest guy and he'll most certainly be missed.

Still mis coming here to see what you are up to and what's cooking. It's been seven months since you left us and I am still drawn to you blog. I am so glad your son hasn't taken it down. I wonder if you had any idea of how many people were touched by you and your humor, caring and kindness. Probably not...perhaps thats why you are missed.

I so hope your wife and sons are doing okay and that Craig does do a cookbook of your recipes. It would be nice if he would insert a few photos and tell some memories of you along the way.

Have you by chance ran into my brother Denny? He died just a few months before you did. If you get the chance tell him I so miss him too. You and he were about the same age while you were walking on earth.

Rest In Peace my friend.
Jolie

I've been a slacker in the blogworld lately, so I was just catching up on my friends' blogs and discovered this sad news.

I always enjoyed your father's witty musings and "tell it like it is" approach.

It was an honor to "virtually" know him. My sincerest sympathies to you and your family.

WizzyTheStick said...

This comes as such a shock. My condolences to the family

Mona said...

((HUGS)) whereever you are...

I still havent had the heart to blog or blob around friends blobs..... jebus you are still so missed Buff.... and coming here still makes me cry, but come here I do...... hope your at peace.... you bloody sod for leaving us... x

Dear Buff,
One year ago today the world lost you. I still think of you a lot and miss stopping in here and seeing what you say on my blog. Every so often I will be trying a new recipe and I'll think "I should send this one to Buff." and then I remember you are no longer here. Perhaps you can see them from where you are. I hope there is a cooking heaven for you and lots of others that you can swap recipes and ideas with. Are you calling out to me? Seems funny that I happen to come here exactly on the one year date. Go figure! Eerie...don't you know?

RIP my friend and know that you are remembered, though of often and missed by so many of us. My thoughts are with you and your wife and two sons today. I hope life and time is helping them heal.

Jolie

Mona said...

Miss you!

Pat Tillett said...

I'm not sure how or why, but today I thought about some of the great people I've met while blogging. You are right up there with the best of them.

Chef E said...

Just thinking about BD, and cannot stop thinking about him when I get in BBQ discussions and all he taught me. I lost my daughter and parents, so I know how hard it is to want to come back to their stuff and find bits and pieces of their spirit, and their words.

Hope peace has found him and you...

Eternally Distracted said...

It's been a long time since I blogged and this was one of the first sites I came back to... BD will be sorely missed in the bloggosphere. My thoughts are with you and your family.

deb said...

Lea Ann said...

Miss you Buff

KB said...

Read one of your old comments on my blog today and now I see it's almost two years to the day since you left us. You are missed.

UBERMOUTH said...

Ironic that I should come here just to see if your blog is still up and it's one day to the anniversary of your second year gone. My time flies. What a great wit you were Buffy.

Still missing you and Mutley.

June 25,2012

Mr. Condescending said...

Can't believe it's been that long. Seems like yesterday you were making me crack up.

Barbara said...

Stumbled on this great blog and sadly read the last entry first. Read a few of Buff's last entries and then decided to start at the beginning and I read the entire blog from beginning to end. It was like reading a good book but knowing the outcome. When I got to the June 2010 entries, my eyes began tearing up, knowing what was coming. Buff had a wonderful sense of himself. It was so evident that he loved his family and was loved by them. Reading the comments was fun - he was loved by his followers and there was so much respect shown going both ways. I wish I had been able to read the blog and get to know Buff via his blog. I will miss Buff even though I came to his blog in 2013. A genuine human being is
immortalized in Buff's blog. 2/7/13
From Barbara in Fort Worth TX

Mike said...

I still pop in every once in a while. I miss this place.

UBERMOUTH said...

What a lovely comment from barbara. I considered Buffy a friend and he was great fun, a great cook and a great man. I miss him. It's coming up to the 3 year anniversary of his death already.

He is still remembered in blogland. xoxox
