Walt Dickerson has left the planet

To all concerned:

I was asked to inform you of the regrettable death of vibraphonist, Walt Dickerson, by his beloved wife, Elizabeth. Walt passed away on May 15 from cardiac arrest. He was 80 years of age and lived in Willow Grove, PA.

In sympathy,

Andrew Cyrille
