It is with the deepest regret that I announce the passing of our club Secretary and Treasurer, Richard “Stimpy” Kohli. Dick served four years as the club Secretary & Treasurer and a wealth of knowledge was lost with his passing. Our condolences and sympathies go out to his wife Penny and their children with the assurance that he will never be forgotten.
