This morning I’m saddened to learn that Dick Spady, the co-founder and namesake of Seattle’s beloved Dick’s Drive-In Restaurant chain, has passed away. He was one of the first subjects of my column back in 2009, and I’ve met several members of the wonderfully inspiring and kind Spady family in person over the years. What a great legacy Mr. Spady leaves behind in Seattle. Here are some of the sketches I’ve made at Dick’s over the years as a little tribute to a grand Seattle personality.
