Newspaper columnist, playwright and television personality Dick Feagler, who has covered every major story in Northeast Ohio, has died on Sunday, according to sports columnist Bill Livingston.
Great is a term thrown around too loosely. But Dick Feagler was worthy of it. The great PD and Cleveland Press columnist has died. He was a brilliant writer, a courageous champion of what he felt was right, and a good friend. RIP to one of the best.
