Richard Fry

Posted: April 17th, 2019

RICHARD FRY – deputy circulation manager in the heyday of the Sunday Mirror for much of the 1970s – died on April 13 [2019] aged 89.

His sons recall Dick’s many tales of life at the Mirror, including overnight trips on seatless coaches to get the papers out during train strikes, and card games in the editor’s office in the early hours of Sunday. Dick refuted to the end the spurious allegation that he still owed for a round in the Stab.

Dick leaves his wife Patricia, sons Nick, Chris and Jonathan, and eight grandchildren.

Dick Fry is pictured in the centre. We think that’s Mike Christiansen on the right. Dick’s sons would like a full left to right, so if you can help please get in touch via the Contact Us page.
