    Dick has passed away. He used to be heavily involved in Trashfest and TGCC. I went on a dive trip with him once. Was a legend in Houston diving community.

    I'm really sad to hear that. Dick was such an integral part of the Texas dive community for decades.

    These are two of my favorite pictures of him from TrashFest 2008

    After manning the helm of the event for so long, he had a great time finally being able to just be a participant.

    Godspeed, Dick. Your smile and your boundless enthusiasm will be greatly missed.

    Often referred to as the Father of Trashfest, Dick began making trips to the Comal to clean up the river several years before it morphed into an official event.

    Check out this document on the TGCC site honoring his selection as 2008 NOAA Environmental Hero, it lists some of his biography and accomplishments.

    Please join us as we celebrate the life of our brother in Christ, Dick
    Zingula, next Thursday, June 29, 1:00 pm at Grace, with a reception
    following in the Parish Hall. Dick truly was a remarkable servant of
    God, and we have all been blessed to know him over these years.

    If you would like to make a memorial gift, we are grateful that his
    family requests all memorial gifts to be given to Grace Episcopal Church Houston.

    In our grief, let us pray.
    Holy God, our brother Dick is in your hands, and we lift his soul to
    you as we say goodbye to him. We pray for his family and all who love
    him, and ask you to bring the peace that only you can give. We pray
    all this in your Sons name, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Peace be with you,

    The Rev. Gena Davis, Vicar
    Grace Episcopal Church and School

    Awww, shucks, this makes me sad. I sure did love me some Dick Zingula. He always made me smile from my toes. What a sweet, sweet man, with a smile that could melt an iceburg. He was so passionate about diving. We are all lucky to have had the pleasure of knowing him. On eagles wings, Dick.
