was Howard Lee’s custom, he left his condo the morning on 9/16/2008 at 6 A M to arrive at the golf course to be the
first one there to check in all players. He was found at the foot of his condo’s steps about an hour or so later.
His service as our Tournament Chairman for the last several years was in very good hands. That smiling face was always
there to welcome each player when he arrived and was there until the final scorecard was turned in before he went home.
When he got home he kept working until he had all scores recorded and sent the results out for all members to see. He
attended all board meetings, returned all telephone calls and stayed on top of organizing each tournament to make it run smoothly,
fairly and accurately. He will be sorely missed.
