Even though I could not physically make it to the service today, I am there in spirit. So many thoughts of Dink and Barbara and Nancy this week. What I will most remember about Dink is his presence at Visions on Thursdays, making sure the beginning shaggers felt welcome and offering to help them. His presence and many contributions to Richmond Shag Club will certainly be missed! My love and sympathy to Barbara, Nancy, and his entire family.
I have many pleasant memories of dancing with Dink and repeating until I got it right! He was very patient. He was always offering advice, in a good way. A very caring person that made you feel better about yourself. I will miss him.
I know you have many more pleasant memories of Dink and I hope they will help you through this pain. My prayers are with you.
Brian and I send our love and condolences to Dinky’s family and friends. We always enjoyed seeing him when he and Barbara visited N. Myrtle Beach. He was a good friend and I always looked forward to dancing with him when we lived in Richmond. He always had a smile. We love you Dinky and know we will see you again. You’re in His hands now.
To The Slaughter Family,
I am truly sorry for your loss. I can't imagine the grief and sorrow that each of you are feeling at this time. I will hold each of you in my thoughts and prayers. All the wonderful memories yall shared will last a lifetime.....I can hear my father now trying to tell Dinky how to make that perfect putt awwwwwwwww...
im really sad at dinkys passing,he was been a friend since 1968. we played baseball together at woodpecker lodge. it always was a pleasure running into him,and was more words than hi. I hope to meet him again one day.
It was with shock and sadness that I read of Dink's passing. He and I go back a long way, turning double plays in HS, with him at short and me at 2nd, then continuing in all the years of Watkins' softball, just from a different angle with him on the mound then...." If it's back to you, Dink, I'll be there". My deepest condolences go out to all of the family. My God bless you and keep you during this time. Love, Cla
As we mourn Dink's passing, may GOD wrap his loving arms around us and give us peace and comfort. He was a very special man and he will be missed by all who knew him. Rest in peace, Dink.
To Dink’s family, Barbara & friends - Dink’s friendliness, love of life, sense of humor & many talents will truly be missed. He was a wonderful dancer & Teacher & will be missed at many Shag events, including The Richmond Shag Club,The Villages Shag Club in Florida & Myrtle Beach SOS.

I am so glad to have known Dink and have the pleasure of his company all these years in the Richmond Shag Club with countless events and fundraisers too . He has left his upbeat indelible mark with so many of us and that love won't be fading away .
Dink left a lasting impression to all that he met. I am thankful that I got the opportunity to know him. He will be missed, but a part of him will be in everyone’s heart. My condolences go to Barbara and his family.
