Entertainer. Dick Clark was an American game-show host, radio and television personality, and businessman. He served as chairman and chief executive officer of Dick Clark Productions, which he sold part of in recent years. Clark is best known for hosting long-running television shows such as American Bandstand, five versions of the game show Pyramid, and Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve. Clark was long known for his departing catchphrase, "For now, Dick long," delivered with a military salute, and for his youthful appearance, earning the moniker "America's Oldest Teenager." Clark suffered a significant stroke in late 2004. With speech ability still impaired, Clark returned to his New Year's Rockin' Eve show on December 31, 2005/January 1, 2006. Subsequently, he appeared at the Emmy Awards on August 27, 2006, and every New Year's Rockin' Eve show through the 2011/2012 show. On April 18, 2012, Clark died of a heart attack at the age of 82. (bio courtesy of: Wikipedia)

You will never be forgotten, Dick. So many of us baby boomers will remember you for the rest of our lives, with happiness, and music that satisfied us in our own ways. May the angels take care of you while you rest. Forever fan, Wanda
