Todd is the afternoon guy, family guy, and janitor guy at Cat Country 107.1. He was born and raised in Texas. Until he moved to Ft. Myers, drove his horse, Lulu, back and forth to work. Even though he's been on the radio in various places like Houston, Shreveport, Ft. Walton Beach and Pennsylvania, (??) he has no idea where he left the keys to his horse. Somewhere along the way he got married and had three beautiful children: Trale, Mason, and Kyli. He speaks 2 year old fluently. Todd's eating habits may be strange, but he loves country music.
Officials say they received a phone call before the shooting in which the caller said there would be a dead body at the cemetery and it would be his.
Operators scrambled, trying to place a return call, but there was no answer.
When emergency responders arrived, they found Trickle's body near his pickup truck.
Trickle was a fan favorite in NASCAR -- often smoking cigarettes while he raced.
Dick won the NASCAR "Rookie of the Year" award in the Winston Cup in 1989, when he was 48 years old.
Trickle was also beloved by the gang on "SportsCenter" -- Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick used to almost always report his race results -- no matter how poorly he finished -- just because they were amused by his name.
Olbermann just tweeted ... "No sports figure Dan + I had fun with took it more graciously. In fact, gratefully."
He added, "Trickle helped mainstream NASCAR coverage on @SportsCenter We gave prominent attention to him, then his races, then ALL races."
