Sadly we report a loss in our pickleball family. David Allen Coad passed away in Campbell River on May 15th, 2017, just 2 weeks shy of his 65th birthday, following a 2 year battle with cancer. Dave excelled in many sports including badminton and table tennis - he was turning his focus to pickleball when cancer struck. We extend our deepest sympathies to his family and friends. Here is a link to an obituary in the Campbell River Mirror.
