Richard Pickett (Pick) was my best friend through Madison Junior High, Cooper High, and into college at what was then North Texas State University. During his high school years, he played trombone in the band and was the major pianist in the musical band Cougar Brass. He was an accomplished musician, graduating with a degree in Composition in 1973.

This is sad news.  Thank you for posting this, Andy.  Richard was an amazing all round musician.  In addition to his piano skill, he was also a creative composer.  We started the music major journey together at North Texas in the fall of 1969. RIP
