Richard Durrett, a long time basketball reporter for ESPN News has recently passed away unexpectedly after he had a brain aneurysm as the age of thirty eight. Mr. Durrett had been working for ESPN News for the better part of 17 years before he passed away this weekend unexpectedly. He was found in his bedroom early in the morning by his wife, after she could not wake him up she checked for a pulse and when she saw no vital signs she called the police. By the time the police got there they couldn’t do anything to help revive the man.
Medics later on said that Richard Durrett had died ten minutes after falling asleep that night and that he couldn’t have been revived whatsoever, even if they had revived him he would have been a vegetable with barely any brain function what so ever. This news shocked Dallas ESPN reporters as they had worked alongside Richard for the last seventeen years, he just wasn’t a co-worker but he was a family member that they all cherished.
ESPNDallas.com said the following, “We would like to give our condolences to the Durrett Family. Everyone here at ESPN Dallas who you all know personally are taken back by your loss nearly as much as you are. Richard was like family to us, he’d come into the office a happy man everyday and his smile will be missed everyday now. We can only hope that you all recover in the best way possible.”
