    Remembering Dick Decker, And His Snowmobile Driven Life

    By John Prusak originally published on

    Dick and Audrey Decker, in 2015 (left) and 1988 (right).

    The world of snowmobiling lost an icon today when Richard “Dick” Decker of Eagle River, Wisconsin, died. He was 92. 

    He lived a life full of energy, passion and enthusiasm. That and his love of the sport that he exhibited in so many ways made him a good friend of mine who I always cherished seeing and who I will miss dearly. Racer, dealership owner, team owner, track owner, tour guide, ambassador, advocate and more, he was a multi-time Hall of Famer in every sense of the word. 

    In 2019, Dick Decker sat down for an interview with me. Below is that story, in its entirety. Remember to therefore add 5 years onto the ages and timelimes mentioned in this story. Enjoy. And Godspeed, Dick! You truly impacted many, many lives and you will be dearly missed.
