Rick L. Petsche

Rick L. Petsche, 64, decided to play a new golf course called “Heavensgate Private Club.” Tee time was 8:36 a.m. on April 3, 2020. Arriving at the tee box was Roger Goodman; along with his twin brothers Garry and Larry; his brother Bruce; his nephew Cory, whom he was going to teach how to golf; his sister Cheryl, driving the beer cart; and Mattie chasing the golf balls. 

Rick’s other passion in life was playing fast pitch softball. He could tell you every team member he played with. The best story was about Bush Ballpark where he hit numerous home runs. The fence was really short. He was also an avid bowler.
