Not sure what to say?

I am sorry regarding the loss of your loved one. I was wandering why I hadnt seen him on TV, anywhere. I didn't realize, he had passed, until reading his obituary. May the God of Comfort, continue to comfort the family.

We miss you Dick!!!!

Grew to love spring time through baseball then the seasons would continue Oh My what a great year I would realize after it was done. Then before you knew it spring began again Oh My! Mr. Endberg carried me through. It's very hard not to follow the rules I'm sorry again there's dick & vin that's it!!!

Although known for his California sportscasts, Dick was a salt of the earth Midwest man with a heart and passion of good.

May God bless you and your family during this very sad time.

Will always remember your Chicago broadcasts for DePaul games with Al McGuire. "Oh My!"

You had great fun times here and Chicago will never forget you.


Like, his name, "Dick Enberg", He had to be a really Strong and Tough person, and He probably wants His Family to have Those Traits too and Carry on His Legacy with God Almighty's Strength and Do It With Class!!! Hail to you, Mr. Enberg!!!

What an amazing life Mr. Enberg lived. The beautiful words of his colleagues and friends speaks volumes of his character.
To the family:
May your mourning soon be overshadowed with hope and strength giving joy. Matthews reminded us, "happy are those who mourn, since they will be comforted,"- Matthews 5:3 No doubt such kind words of others bring you comfort.

To the Enberg Family:

I am grateful to have grown up in an era that I had a chance to hear your husband, father, and colleague share his gift! He always enhanced any event that he covered and he is already sorely missed. The NFL won't be the same without him, but may GOD Bless you all during difficult time and my prayers are with you. Well Done Dick and God ... said "Oh My" when Dick walked through those pearly gates.

R.I.P. Mr Enberg, you were one of the best! Thoughts and prayers to family and friends!

Barbara and family I am so very sorry to hear this news. Dick was one of those wonderful professionals to whom many look up to. I enjoyed listening to him on many occasions broadcasting many events, especially his moments to remember from the olympics for the children.
