A Friend Passes

Owen Vatananugulkit, father of Beverly Vatananugulkit of Cerritos, California has passed away unexpectedly. Owen and George Pinnell have been associated with each other through George’s teaching of Beverly as she developed her golf game as a young junior player.

Beverly and her father were preparing for a practice round at the Rolex Girls Junior Championship at Long Cove Club in Hilton Head, South Carolina, when Owen suffered from an apparent heart attack that took his life at an early age.

Pinnell has said, “there is not a nicer person on this earth than Beverly’s father. He was the kindest, most gentle, thoughtful person.” He will be missed.
