Happy 84th Birthday Mr. Debonaire

Legendary Richard Dwyer, who’s been performing the debonair role in ice shows since age 14, returned again to Hershey recently as a special guest, for Hershey Figure Skating Club’s 85th anniversary.
(An HFSC alumnus, Richard has been a family friend since early ‘60s when my State Policeman Dad befriended him in Hershey, where he performed annually for decades since 1950.) He was inducted into the National Figure Skating Hall of Fame. And holds the Guinness Book Record for longest ever professional ice skating career. His smoothie act remains: skating in top hat & tails with lovely ladies; then solo leaps, axels, backward jumps & amazing agility — all at age 84!  Written by Paul Homick
