My father passed away Tuesday this week. He was a soft spoken southern gentleman. If you are wondering what this has to do with Disc Golf, my father was the Los Angeles Park Superintendent at the time that Pasadena's Oak Grove Park was put in. After I had been playing disc for a while, I was staying the night with my parents in Stockton on the way down to the Wintertime Open in Pasadena. Dad asked me where we were going to be playing in Los Angeles. When I told him Oak Grove Park in Pasadena, he looked at me brightly and said,"I approved that course." I was a little taken aback and got the story. So not only was he a great father and gentleman in general, he was one of the reasons that we are all able to get out into the woods and play the game we love.
