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.

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.
