Sad News from Southwest Chess Club

Very sad news, I received an email today from Tom Fogec of the Southwest Chess Club:

It is with great sadness that I must inform you that Joe Crothers, President of the Southwest Chess Club, has passed away. Joe collapsed Sunday evening while playing chess at the Southwest Chess Club pavilion at Polish Fest and died later at the hospital. He was a wise and valued leader of our club and will be greatly missed. Arrangements are still pending, but likely to appear in tomorrow's Journal Sentinel. If you would want to offer any thoughts or reminiscences regarding Joe, you can do so at our club blog. It is: http://swccchess.blogspot.com/
