Rest in peace, Dickie. You will be missed by everyone who was lucky enough to have made your acquaintance. I shall now go sob some more........

That is sad news.
I was on the Febrina a couple of months ago and Dickie was hitching a ride back home. He was onboard for 6 days.
It was always interesting to hear his stories during lunch & dinner.
Sad new indeed.

Dickie was always hitching rides on the FeBrina. I was always happy when he would join my trips with Alan. He had the very best stories and I learned so much about PNG, the people and the culture from him.

Dickie was good company. Had the good fortunate to meet him a few times. The inevitable part of life, unfortunately. RIP.

Yes - A trip to the Witu Islands just won't be the same anymore without Dickie

Sad news indeed. I had the pleasure of meeting him in 2009 on a trip on the FeBrina. RIP Dickie.
