Passing of Lifelong Official Dick Beare

dick beareHonoured Lifelong Official, Dick Beare passed away last night at the age of 74.

Dick had served as Chief of Timing for every level of our sport, from Nancy Greene Ski League to Nor-Ams to the Canada Winter Games and the Lake Louise Winterstart World Cups. His volunteer contribution to alpine ski racing went well beyond the Timing Building. Dick worked tirelessly for decades training new officials and race administrators. Dick was inducted into the Canadian Rockies Ski Racing Hall of Fame last November in Calgary. He will be deeply missed and always fondly remembered by all who knew him. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with Dick’s wife Myrna, daughter Marina and his entire extended family.
