Richard G. Dyson “Uncle Slosh”

Richard G Dyson - Albion, NY - Rochester Cremation

On the evening of April 10, 2022 Richard passed away due to a heart attack, at his home in Albion, NY at age 58.  Born in Rochester, NY on April 10, 1964.

Richard’s passion was supporting local musicians.  He was a D.J. with WRFZ 106.3 FM where he was known by most as Uncle Slosh.  The radio show he co-hosted, Rock the ROC, on Sundays 12-4pm showcases local artists from across the state as well as larger national and international acts that are widely known.  The show will go on with his co-host and close friend Bryan Juda.

He proudly worked for John Lee & Co. Quality Paving, Hilton NY, as a CDL Driver for the past 16+ years.  Richard also served in the United State Army.

Preceded in death by his wife Marylin, father John, his uncle David Frank, cousin Gary Frank, and a number of close friends.  He is survived by his mother Judith, brother Dennis, as well as his beloved cats Bailey and Wolf.

Richard will be deeply missed for his zany sense of humor, ability to create laughter and to make others feel welcome and appreciated regardless of the circumstance.  He leaves behind many close friends and loved ones that will never forget.

A Celebration of Life will be planned for a future date.  Friends and loved ones are welcome, details will go out via social media and word of mouth.

Those compelled to donate in his memory can do so with Rochester Free Radio at or a charity of your choice.

    I’ll never forget is unique way of entering everyone around him at every gathering and or celebration.
    Our shared interest in metal music created our bond of friendship.
    I always felt as if I could speak straight from the cuff and that he felt the same way.
    I definitely will miss his presence.
    God rest ye merry gentleman.
    Peace brother

    Slosh was a great guy and is a beautiful soul. His love and dedication to local musicians, and heavy music was unmatched. He was a walking encyclopedia of music knowledge. I will cherish the memories of all the shows that I attended with him and the times we hung out. He was a one of a kind that I and many others were fortunate to have known.
    Deepest and heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. Godspeed Uncle Slosh. Have a drink with Lemmy for me.🤘
