The Checker Community is saddened about Mr. Fortman's death. He was one of the giants of our mind sport and gave so much over his 93 years. He will be dearly missed. We offer our sympathy and prayers to the Fortman family. “Fortman’s 1st 20 moves on all openings... the basic checker foundation book” which Marion Tinsley said, "Checker players might forget some of the many championship titles "Dick" Fortman won, but they'll never forget Fortman's "BC," a great contribution to checkers!"

I was saddened by the news of Richard's passing. Although I had never met him in person, only on the internet, I thought of him as a dear friend.

Please except our condolences concerning Richards passing. He will be missed by family and friends, but heaven has just received the best checkers player on the planet. Only the love for his family surpassed his love for the game.
