just wanted everyone to know that Jim Widdick, founder of the Sarasota Sky Pilots, passed away tonight at Manatee Hospice. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts. He was wonderful person with a very big heart. he will be greatly missed by us all.
I hold Jim responsible for bringing disc golf to sarasota and developing a club that has grown to over 550 members and still continues to grow. His dedication to the sport and a dream that he had that involved tirless meetings with the city of sarasota, phisically giving himself to the course during it's development and the raising of a new club. He has showed us all with his accomplishments for this sport that nothing is impossible or unreachable. For that reason I am very proud to be a Sarasota Sky Pilot and honored to have had the chance not only to meet him but to have him as a friend. So tonight I think of you Mr. Widdick me and my juniors want to say to you from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for the great oppotunity to have experienced this awesome sport and for your tireless efforts to have made it possible to be a part of something this great.
You will never be forgotten and will always be remembered for all that you have done for us, thank you!!!
