All of us who knew Chris Dickey mourn his passing with an intensity only matched by the joy we feel at having known him over several decades. Rarely has a correspondent matched expertise, analytical skills, street reporting & sheer human grace to the extent that he did. RIP, pal. https://t.co/63ugEuEMjW

I am heartbroken…Christopher Dickey was often a guest during my hours…and when he stopped in NYC we would spend the most delightful time catching up on his latest works, his book, and the highlight of his life, his family. Truly a great man who will be dearly missed.

I have lost an old, old friend, Chris Dickey, he has passed on due to a heart attack in Paris last night. We have know each other since high school and have kept in contact ever since. I am sad. Here we are together in the early 1970’s.
