John Webster Benefit

A benefit disc golf “tournament” was held on January 28, 2006 for John Webster and his family. John was diagnosed earlier in the month as having a very agressive form of brain tumor that was in a very advanced stage of development. The one-round tournament was held at The Albert Schweitzer Nature Preserve disc golf course in Carmichael, also known as “Little Africa”. Turn-out was very good for the no-score event, and the weather even cooperated. The rains held off just long enough for the last of the raffle items to be handed out. Thank you to all who made the event a success, especially to those who drove from as far away as Nevada City and Santa Cruz to be a part of this final tribute to a good friend, a great human being, and a truly average disc golfer. My friend John left us on Wednesday, February 1, 2006, at the all-too-young age of 56. His final moments were spent in the loving company of his family, and I am told he was at peace. He will be missed. — Kevin Couch
