We’re heartbroken to announce that our friend and colleague, Rick “Tuna” Williams passed away, unexpectedly, on Wednesday of this week. He was the recent net division winner of the Statesmen division at the Gearhart Golf Links Hickory Classic; a fitting high point to go out on, if we do say so ourselves. Tuna was beloved by all and a spirited advocate for the game. His closest friend, Steve “Dog” Franich, with whom he served in Vietnam, will dedicate this month’s event at Trophy Lake Golf and Casting Club in his memory. We will miss you, Tuna! Well played. #RIP
Rick will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery on October 3rd, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. EST.
