The Man Who Gave Me A Million Dollars Passes Away – Brian’s Blog

Million Dollar Bill Front
Brian Gary, TSM

Dick DuvallThe greatest part of my job is getting to meet you. I love the chance to get out in the public and broadcast live and see people face to face. I meet so many incredible people who are so kind to me. I have developed relationships just from live broadcasts that I treasure.

One of my favorite stories of the kindness of listeners was the time I was broadcasting at an event about 10 years ago. I had a friend who would stop by my broadcasts whenever I was in Greeley. He was an older gentleman named Dick Duvall. Dick was always bringing us little toys and trinkets to play with, like he would to a child or grandchild, but one day he out did himself. He came up to me and handed me a $1,000,000 bill. He said I know this is fake but you deserve it. He told me I was worth a million and to hang on to it. He laughed, like he always did and I stuffed it in my wallet.

I saw in the paper over the weekend that Dick passed away on the 4th of July. I hadn’t seen him in a couple years but thought of him often. After I heard of his death yesterday I immediately reached into my wallet and found that I still had that million dollar bill tucked in there. I can’t tell you how many times through the years I have looked at that bill and smiled. There were times when I would clean out my wallet and think I should just throw that thing away but could never get myself to do it. It is just one of those things that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I will always carry a piece of his kindness with me wherever I go. You were a great guy Dick. Thanks a million.
