It is with a heavy heart that we send this announcement to you. We will be adding a name to the Memorial Tribute to Jack O’Leary next Wednesday, 5:15 pm in ClubING Room 309A at the PGA Merchandise Show.
ING charter member Larry Durland passed away Tuesday at the age of 93. His daughter Marti Ramsey indicated that Larry, who had been battling a bladder infection for a few months, had trouble breathing late last week. He made two trips to the hospital over the weekend, and passed yesterday.
No funeral arrangements are being made at this point. There will be a memorial sometime in March, and ING will have a tribute following the Durland Cup competition at this year’s 25th ING Spring Conference May 31-June 3 at Mission Inn Resort.
Larry, a military man and a sports writer, was a devoted husband to Vivian, father and ING member. He gave 100 percent to all of his endeavors, including serving as the longtime golf committee chair and advisory member for ING.
We will greatly miss Larry’s smiling face and friendly presence at future ING gatherings, but he will be there in spirit.
