Countryway TUESDAY Golf
We lost one of our Golfing Friends Today! - "You will be missed, Rich!"
Rich, a very good golfer moved from the Ft. Myers area last year, and we always enjoyed having him on our Tuesday morning Team.
Rich was born in 1924 and lived on the
Countryway Golf Course. No memorial service is planned. His ashes will be
scattered on his favorite Ft. Myers golf course.
Several Tuesday golfers enjoyed Randy on our Tuesday morning team just a few weeks ago.
Randy is survived by 2 sons: Kenneth and Steven; longtime partner: Terry Koltz; 2 nieces: Linda and Terri; nephew: Donald; and 4 grandsons.
A Brief Memorial Service was held
"Great Friends We'll Never Forget!"
"We miss you guys already!"
Obituary & Memorial
VALENTE, Frank Sr. 84, of Tampa, passed away November 14, 2012. He was born on December 29, 1928 and served in the U.S. Army for 27 years in Korea and Vietnam. He loved golf, and sometimes played with our Tuesday golfers
He was involved in pee wee football and girls softball programs in Town 'N Country and was a fan of the NY Giants.
He is survived by his wife of 57 years, 3 children, one brother, 3 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren
O'HAIR, Jr., Harold William 'Bill', 65, of New Port Richey, known to many as "Billy
O", went to be with his Lord on February 2, 2011.
Bill was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, excelled in athletics, and loved baseball. He was scouted by the Tigers, Orioles, Reds, and Indians. He accepted a scholarship at Toledo University, but always wanted to be a police officer. The head scout for the Detroit Tigers allowed him to do both. Bill was a dedicated officer with the Toledo Police Force.
He worked out with the AAA Mud Hens in the International League (farm team of the Detroit Tigers) and signed a lucrative contract, but a terrible car accident ended that career. Later, in Florida, Billy joined the 40s softball team and won 3 world titles in 8 years.
Bill played a little golf in Ohio, but the cold weather limited that activity, and it wasn't until he came to Florida for a vacation that the golfing bug took over and he decided to stay. Attempting to qualify for the Senior Tournament at Fox Hollow Golf Club, he shot a 71, but only 3 players were selected. His good friend, Steven Hensley, introduced him to Countryway Golf Club and he and his wife Debbie enjoyed the Friday night 'couple's league.
He took special pride in his achievement of the lowest score ever at Countryway Golf Club. That record still stands today. On July 16, 2006, Billy O shot a score of 52.
Bill is survived by his loving wife Debbie O'Hair; daughter Renee Hughes and her husband Joe; sons, Jon and Jeremy O'Hair; stepson, Kris Gunter; Stepdaughter, Staci Jones; five grandchildren: Brooke, Dylan, Cameron, Brandon and Alexis - (and a baby on the way); brothers Denny, Tim and Brad O'Hair, and sister, Marlene.

Fred served stateside in the Army during the Vietnam Conflict. He was
employed with Central Maine Railroad for 21 years.
