Thanks for the memories: Viewers share stories of Dick Goddard as the legend retires

CLEVELAND, Ohio-- It's a bittersweet day here at FOX 8. Tonight is Dick Goddard's final forecast during FOX 8 News at 6 p.m.

There are so many wonderful stories and photos that our viewers are sending in -- memories of Mr. Goddard. 

My dad, Berni Rich,  was a commercial photographer from the 1950's until the early 2000's. He ran Score Photographers here in Cleveland. He took a few pictures of Dick over the years. I know he has a really young photo of Dick from the 1960's, but I cant find it. I was able to find this one from 1977.   -Adam Rich

One person shared a photo of Dick from 1977; another person shared a photo of her son meeting Dick Goddard during a weather calendar signing.

Dick Goddard is not just a Northeast Ohio legend; he's a national legend too. The Washington Post did a story previewing Goddard's final forecast, calling him a "Northeast Ohio institution."

Another legendary weatherman -- Al Roker-- shared a special goodbye with Mr. Goddard.

So did Cleveland's Drew Carey.

As we honor Dick's retirement tonight, get ready for lots of surprises including special guests, awards, and many more memories.

We hope you join us tonight at 6 p.m. for Dick Goddard's final forecast.
