My thoughts and prayers are with Richard's family. He was an amazing person. Always cheerful and full of energy - and a great writer and reporter with an incredible work ethic. Richard made a difference to those around him. He left a legacy.

I'm not religious but believe a person leaves an essence when they depart us. Mr. Durrett left us too early and my sympathies to all his family. The essence left by Richard will linger many years , a nice man and a fine journalist.

I saw a tall, smiling gentleman watching his beautiful little girl attempt to climb a fence at a ball field. He was laughing, all the while snapping photos. At game time, this same man was on the field, shouting words of encouragement and high-fiving the players. No matter what bobble, or blunder these players created, this man praised and encouraged his Texas Rangers. The team adored this man. He was one of their coaches. They were his Rangers Tee ball team. He will be missed by all. Prayers to the family of this wonderful man.

We had the sincere pleasure of meeting Richard at his brother's wedding, where he served as best man. He delighted us all with his funnier than funny, best man speech! His wife and children were just darling and as we observed, much loved by Richard. A truly amazing man in EVERY way! A true blessing to all, gone too soon! Richard will be the best Angel, ever!

I don't root for Texas teams, but I always appreciated Richard Durrett's perspective when I read his ESPN Dallas articles. His family remains in my thoughts.

Feeling saddened by Richard Durrett's sudden passing. I have listened to him on the radio for years. It's hard to fathom that he is gone. Though I didn't know him, you felt like you did. Prayers to all his family, friends and colleagues especially for his wife and young children. You will sincerely be missed. You brightened my life whenever I got to hear you talk about the Rangers. Rest in peace.

R.I.P. , And may God grant your family the peace and comfort of his never ending love, Amen?

As an avid Ranger fan living outside of the area I became a big fan of Richard. You could just tell by how he spoke on segments he was on for ESPN that he was a quality person. The words people/athletes/fans have said for him have struck me. His children will grow up proud to know their dad was a great human being, who did things the right way and cared about those around him.

This kind of news sucks. There's nothing I can add that hasn't already been said about his greatness, and it's all true. This earth just got a little worse with his passing, and Heaven just got a whole lot better. Rest in Peace. You did an awesome job in your 38 years.
June 19, 2014
He always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. He will be missed.
June 19, 2014
Rest in peace and may your family find some as well.

Having worked in radio for a couple of decades I was aware that people on air became a part of the listeners lives...I didn't realize how much that was true until I as a listener felt the loss of someone I never met, but considered part of my circle.

I cannot even begin to know how much of a hole this has created in the lives of his friends, wife & children.

My thoughts are prayers are with you all.
June 19, 2014
While we have never met, I have enjoyed reading your reports, and sharing our interest in the Texas Rangers. I am touched by all of the nice words that have been spoken about you as a man, a husband, and a father. May you rest in peace, and may God's grace and favor be upon your family.

Never met but really enjoyed his work and chats about the Rangers. He was well respected by all! God Bless his family during this terrible time. Rest in Peace.

"Well done, good and faithful servant." Those words continually come to mind as I have read what countless others have shared regarding Richard Durrett. Without question he will be missed by his precious family, beloved friends, and scores and scores of fans like me who he touched with his written word. What an incredible legacy Richard has left behind for his family. Praying Richard's family finds comfort in God's grace and mercy, find strength in the love and support of those who loved and knew Richard best.

My prayers go out for your family. I am a 35 year-old father of two kids of the same age with one on the way, so this news hit me hard. I feel like I know Richard even though we never met. I enjoyed reading his articles and listening to him on the radio. I will miss him greatly. May God's peace and grace be with his wife and children as they both mourn and celebrate the life of this truly amazing man.
