When I was a kid in 1951 my dad came home and told me he had seen a football player who "ran like deer." From that moment on, Dick Kazmaier became one of my all time favorite athletes. The mere mention of his name gave me goose-pimples and filled me with excitement.
My condolences to his family.

Thank you for your service to this nation.

Dick Kazmaier & Jack Davison Princeton vs. Yale Fall 1950

The Davison Family sends their deepest regrets and condolences to the Kazmaier Family. My father, Jack Davison (Princeton Class of 1951), played football with Dick often as his offensive blocker (we Davison kids grew up learning and running those plays in the backyard). I've included a photo from the 1950 Princeton-Yale Game of Kaz (#42) and my father (#34). We grew up hearing incredible stories about the undefeated Princeton teams of 1950 and 1951 and about the amazing "Kaz." Jack...

My condolences to the Kazmaier family. I worked for him at SR Industries. A well-respected businessman, sportsman, and a father to his family.

Patti, Chick and I send you and your family our sincerest sympathy. Dick was such a loving, thoughtful and caring friend, Memories of Florida with CAMP will last forever.

I am sorry we did not find out about Dick until the recent newspaper. We are in Tewksbury with our son, Richard as we sold the Bedford house in March. I hope we can get to see you before we go back to Naples in middle to late September.

I was browsing through some papers and I found a memory of the open...

My heartfelt condolences to Patty and the Kazmaier family. Dick was an amazing man and although I met him only a few years ago I felt as though I had know him for forever...thanks to all the wonderful stories he shared!

I fondly remember lots of trips to the skating rinks and with Mr. K. and the girls. So sorry for the families loss.

Aloha.
We are sending our sincere condolences to the family. Through the many years we met with Dick at many sporting goods ventures, at trade shows, World Federation of the Sporting Goods industry gatherings, the SGMA, at the ISPO in Munich, at sports meetings and sometimes in Hawaii and we cherish the many occasions where we exchanged thoughts and ideas. He was a great man.
May God bless the family.
