Steve Pueschel, one of our members of Research Tennis Club passed away suddenly last week.

Steve was a valued member, he played Monday night and Thursday night competition and in earlier years he was a part of the Tennis coaching team.

The members who had a chance to meet him would agree with me, he was always a gentleman on and off the court, generous with his time and always had time to speak to you and the kids when he was coaching.

Steve you will be sadly missed.

Our condolences to his family, Lil, Ava and Ryan.
