On Sunday April 1, 2012 Richard (Dick) Connor passed away. The pickleball community lost one of the best pickleball ambassadors and mentors we had in our area. He was always willing to help “newbees” and promote the game he loved. We can honor his memory by continuing his legacy and reach out to “newbees” in your area and help the game he loved continue to grow. The family hasn’t completed their funeral arrangements but when I find out more I’ll post the information. Tami and I saw Dick on Friday and he wanted us to thank all of you for your prayers.
