It is with great sadness we mourn the passing of Richard Ramirez, our club founder and first serving president.

Richard had a "get things done" attitude, and nothing could stop him if his mind was set. It was this dogged determination that culminated in the creation and growth of our club. Richard's effort and hard work took the daunting task of introducing curling to Orange County and made it a reality. His legacy lives on in the people who's lives he touched, both current curlers and those yet to come.

Please enjoy the following video, created by OCCC curler Nick Wiley, in memory of, and in tribute to, our club founder Richard Ramirez. To Richard, thank you, and good curling.
