We have several connections to the “King” in our firm, not the least of which is our very own Chad Warmbein who had the honor of playing in the Palmer Cup at Latrobe Country Club the past two years. It’s hard to imagine the world without Arnold Palmer; he was such a permanent figure, not only in golf, but as a person and all of the good that he did outside of the game. It is only in his style that the passing of Arnold Palmer would happen on the eve of the Ryder Cup, an event he cherished and is the person who still holds the title of the most match wins at 22. Never one to seek the limelight, he wouldn’t have wanted to disrupt the event.
His family held a private ceremony at Latrobe Country Club yesterday and spread his ashes, the same as his father’s years before. And, if there was any doubt about his greatness, a rainbow soon emerged across the hills of Western PA. (Photo by @dsteiny026).
Arnold’s inspiration will live on with many of us to work a little harder, spend time with our families and to always give back. So, we wish farewell to a hero and possibly an era, but the memories will never fade…
