Van Dyke Weirdness

Filed under:Cool,It's My Life — posted by Anwyn on November 30, 2007 @ 9:44 am

I found out at Citizens’ Academy last night that one of the sons of Dick Van Dyke, Chris Van Dyke, was a Portland district attorney on the case of the I-5 Killer back in the early 1980s and still lives in the area, having started his own outdoorswear company after a stint at Nike. It’s only weird because I used to live thirty minutes down the road from Dick and Jerry Van Dyke’s childhood home in Danville, Illinois, though sadly I left Illinois for Oregon before the visit described in that page–I would’ve liked to have seen him at Bye, Bye Birdie with the high schoolers. I, um, played Rose myself back in high school.

Anyway, Dick Van Dyke and I also have the same birthday. Separated by 49 years, of course, but still. Weird.
