Letter: Remembering strong, humble George Hargrave
George Hargrave died Monday, Jan. 15. He left many memories to those of us who knew him. He was a competitor, a caregiver, a golfer of excellence and a man of integrity.
George as a young boy and young man honed his golf skills while waiting with others for a bag to carry by competing for pennies. Putting and chipping obviously were some of his natural skills. He learned deportment from those he served. His golf skills many times exceeded those who had the finest clubs.
Early times when The Labor Day Tournament widened the acceptance of a broader field of participants, George took his skill to compete and qualified.
I along with a partner was fortunate to be paired with and to meet George in the competition. I will say that no one could have shown more etiquette, poise and pure skill.
Beyond golf, George had a great love of family exemplified by his loving care of his grandchildren
A strong, humble man. Many will remember and learn from knowing George Hargrave.
