You may have caught Dick after one of his recoveries from surgery.  I went there in 2003 as well and don't recall him in this state.  He taught me cribbage that year so we spent time together seated for a few hours.  I can attest he was not immobile as I watched him and his wife power walking down Fremont St. in 2006.   He did use a walker for about the past 4 years mainly for balance but he was still in phenomenal shape.  Just prior, in 2014, he rappelled down a 27-story building to help a fundraising effort.  Slam covered it here... http://slam.canoe.com/Slam/Wrestling/2014/07/28/21836311.html

No, check out Dick's match as The Shadow against Magnum T.A. starting at the 22:28 mark of this video and check the audience during the intros.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=GrHJp9sF-aw

He was recovering from surgery, but I found that out a few years later. He has done several  physical things since, like repelling from the building you mentioned. But that weekend at CAC, he used his walker the few times I saw him. He was 72, but looked older.

Has anyone checked on Yohe to make sure he hasn't hung himself?
