A talented writer who also was a regular reporter on KMOX Radio made his home in Kirkwood.
Updated: 2:18 p.m. I’m trying to absorb the shocking news. KMOX Radio just reported that Rick Desloge, age 63, lifetime journalist had died of pancreatic cancer. I am in a state of mourning. Fellow Patch editor Dan Barger, Fenton-High Ridge tipped me last week that Rick was really in bad shape, and was moved to Hospice Care at home. This is how it was just reported on KMOX Radio.

Dan, Rick and I all toiled under the watchful eye of Frank Bick and Howard Etling at the Suburban Journals. Both of these gentlemen are still alive, way up in their salad years. They will be heartbroken to hear the news. …
