The “original” Jim Pappas shown here receiving one of his many golf trophies, circa 1970. A great man and golf champion who died 50 years ago today. My hero and mentor growing up. My memories are short-lived but unforgettable; playing golf at Ridgemont GC, shooting hoops in the driveway, bowling and shuffle board at Kodak Rec. facility (B28) and much more. My dad was a World War II veteran, part of the greatest generation. May his memory be eternal!
