A friend passes

George Diefenderfer Jr. lived 95 full years and the last few decades he started golfers at NCR CC.  You always knew George was on the tee because of his booming voice and kind demeanor.  

When we reflect about all the things that make our game so great, to this writer, our community of friends ranks at right at the top.  George will be missed!
