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!!!

Posted by Matthew Toole - Rochester, NY   March 30, 2018

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.

RIP.....

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.

I had the great pleasure of working with Dick while I was employed at Humboldt State University and he graciously agreed to chair a campaign to raise funds for a new computer laboratory. Having benefited from a modest scholarship when he was a student at Central Michigan, Dick was an enthusiastic supporter of higher education and his leadership role in our endeavor was a major factor in its success. From our interactions, I came away with both an appreciation for his selfless assistance and a feeling that this was a man who epitomized the term "gentleman."

I first heard Dick Enberg when I turned the radio dial in 1973 to the wonderful California Angels broadcasting crew comprised of him, Don Drysdale, and Dave Niehaus. He has been a key part of the soundtrack of my life. But I also sensed, as I listened to him, what I have read for years, and now am reading again in his obituaries: that no one had a bad word to say about him as a person. We need more people like him. Those of us feeling his loss cannot begin to compare our feelings with those of his family and friends, and my heart goes out to them.

Posted by Michael Green - Las Vegas, NV   December 28, 2017

Watching Mr. Enberg call football and tennis games growing up was a treat. His voice projected humbleness and professional. He was always in a pleasant mood which added to joyfullness of the broadcast. I'm sure his spirit was received with an Oh My in heaven. RIP!

I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio in the 1970's and 80's. During that time, Mr. Enberg had the call of the three AFC Championship games that the Cleveland Browns played against the Denver Broncos. His call of The Fumble' during the 1987 game was truly indicative of his sports acumen and versatility. Using just the tone and inflection in his voice for those few seconds, he was able to convey to the national television audience the sense of anguish that the Cleveland sports community must be feeling right now after yet another year of heartbreak. It was as if he could relate to our pain. His sentiment actually made that moment more tolerable for me. That was the sheer genius of Mr. Enberg. He brought such a unique perspective and professionalism to sports broadcasting that was (and will be) unrivaled. Whether it was a Cleveland Browns football game or any other major sporting event that was televised in my viewing area, I would always pray and hope that Mr. Enberg had the call.

I will always remember Mr. Enberg as a man of decency, integrity and character. A true gentleman. May he rest in peace.

Dr. Enberg was the Bruins basketball announcer in the '60s with Coach John Wooden on the bench and Center Lewis Alcindor on the court where I was on the court being privileged to officiate those Bruin games. Dick and I kept in close touch as he broadcast NFL games. He and Merlin Olsen broadcast the Houston Oilers - Pittsburgh Steelers AFC Championship game that I officiated. It ended in the controversy of a Ray Renfro catch being ruled incomplete ensuring a Steelers victory and trip to their first of four Super Bowls. We maintained a close relationship. exchanging Christmas Cards each year. Dick voluntarily wrote a letter of recommendation to the Pro Football Hall of Fame recommending my induction. I will miss his friendship. Jim Tunney NFL Referee 1960-1991

Growing up in LA in the '60s and '70s, I was lucky to have had the opportunity to hear Mr. Enberg call the Rams, Angels, and Bruins games on a regular basis. Add his TVS and Sports Challenge work, and subsequently his glorious longtime run on other prominent national and international stages.

Ability, delivery, personality, versatility, professionalism, knowledge, and charm and graciousness of the highest order. His stature as one of the greatest announcers is unquestioned. Per the numerous, sincere accounts from those who knew and loved him, that remarkably genial on-air tone was consistently demonstrated in all settings.

The Legendary Dick Enberg. His body of work and unforgettable presence created a brightness that will continue to shine on.

We were in Paris on vacation and on our last night we had dinner at the Modern Art Museum. At the table next to us were all the broadcasters for the French Open. Since our moms are big tennis fans, we sent over a bottle of our favorite wine to thank them for years of entertainment. Imagine our surprise when Dick came over to thank us for not disturbing their dinner. We took pictures and chatted about Chicago. Thank you Mr. Enburg for being a part of our favorite night in Paris.
