    Very Sad News - Dick Grosbier passes

    All,

    I just received a call that Dick Grosbier passed away. Dick was very well known in benchrest, especially in the Score discipline. He has been the IBS webmaster from day one, I believe. He was serving as the 1st VP of IBS and was the Match Chairman. Dick worked tirelessly on behalf of our sport. His sometimes prickly personality belied the proverbial "heart of gold". He was a good man. He left a pronounced void in the world of Benchrest.

    Condolences to his widow, Carol, and the entire Grosbier family.


    This is very sad news....hard to believe he is gone.

    That is shocking news. Our prayers and thoughts will certainly be with his family.

    Where can we see an obituary?

    I am so sorry to hear this

    I am very sad to hear of Dick's passing. I spoke with him Wednesday night and he sounded tired after the issues with his recent neck operation.

    He was one of the most helpful and concerned people I have met in benchrest, an enthusiastic and helpful shooter with as big a heart as anyone I have ever met. I thoroughly enjoyed my numerous phone conversations with him over the years. He will be sadly missed by all his Maine friends. Carol, our sympathy and prayers to you at this tough time in your life. --Greg

    It is bad! a lot of the "GOOD" people passing on. I met Dick at Holton during the IBS Score Nationals. A great person.

    Sad News Indeed

    My condolences to Carol and all who appreciated him. He will not easily be replaced. Particularly shaking for me because Dick and I were, with in a few days, the same age! Diminished indeed.
