Our yacht club has lost a very dear friend and long time OIYC member. While vacationing in Glacier Park in Montana, Roger Crosby suffered a serious stroke. He lived another nine days in the Kalispell Hospital, with Joan at his side day and night. Roger would have been 92 this November. Joan is thankful that he suffered no pain and received wonderful care in the hospital. His children were able to be there much of the time and their daughter, Chris, is with Joan on Orcas Island now. The family has tentatively set Saturday, August 6th as the day for a Memorial service. We will provide additional information on the Memorial when it is available.
We will miss this wonderful man and keep Joan in our thoughts and prayers.
