A REMINDER
"CELEBRATION OF DALE PRITCHARD" - INFORMATION BELOW



In Memory
DALE PRITCHARD
1924-2014

We received word at Skate Camp that Dale Prichard, coach,friend and northwest icon passed away.
Dale was an icon in the northwest at the Oaks for years and was a friend, coach, judge, announcer at Nationals and we believe he was also a radio announcer in Portland at one time.
He coached both art and speed and had great success coaching on the National level. Dale is also in the Hall of Fame and Life Memberships in amateur roller skating and amateur teaching associations. He prepared many a skater for the Gold Medal Tests and skated with many of them on their Gold Dance.
He always had a positive attitude and made everyone feel welcome. His smile was wonderful, his laugh unforgettable and a sense of humor that made everyone laugh. Like some have said,"the Oaks won't be the same without Dale".
He is survived by his childhood sweetheart, his wife Jeanne Pritchard.
OUR DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO THE FAMILY

REMEMBERING DALE

THE SKATERS WISH TO THANK TED AND DIANNE
FOR ALL THEIR SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT THROUGH THE YEARS

RETIREMENT DINNER FOR DIANNE AND TED

The Marysville Art and Speed Club held a retirement dinner for Dianne and Ted at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Lynnwood with over 120 guests in attendance. Many tears were flowing as Dianne was presented with gifts from the art and speed clubs,employees and dear friends. Loving thoughts and memories were shared by club representatives. Dianne was very touched and it was an emotional event in her life as she has devoted her life for the Marysville Skate Inn and is devoted to the skaters and would travel to meets to support them in their competitions and would offer many times to make it possible for them to attend when their parents couldn't travel with them to Nationals. The rink was built by her parents Fritz and Charlotte Groves 55 years ago, was turned over to Dianne who has run the rink for many years.

It is a difficult time for her and the skaters also as she was so very close to many of the skaters and families. They have moved their motor home off the property getting ready to move, and is seems so different when it isn't parked in her spot when the skaters arrive to skate.

Dianne and Ted will be moving the first part of December as she has stayed on to help the new owner familiarize himself with the building and business. She has worked very hard to keep the business successful and now she is looking forward to traveling and spending well earned time with her husband and family. We wish them a happy retirement.

The skating clubs and Marysville thank her for her years of service to the community, skaters and the Northwest Region for providing an atmosphere for both competitive and recreational skaters.......we will have pictures of the party up soon.........it was a huge success.

GOOD LUCK TED AND DIANNE--YOU WILL BE MISSED

They both started skating as youths and have continued on through the years dedicated to the sport, and have won many National placements and also participated at World Championships three times in Senior Precision, with the Northern Dynamics team from the Northwest competing in Rome, Fresno and Buenos Aires.
