Forgot to post this earlier.

Mark Voight owner of the Community Bowling Centers passed away last night. Detroit lost a good owner. Hopefully his family follows in his footsteps. He was a businessman, but always put bowling first.

I heard about this.  I had the good fortune to go out to lunch with Mark about 5 years ago.  On facebook, he saw that my mother was living in Bay City, and since he was from there as well, he reached out to me, wanting to meet for lunch to talk further.  I had never met the man prior to this.  We spoke about a little bit of everything, and of course bowling.  He came across as very friendly and personal.  I wish our paths would have crossed sooner, and more often.  This is a message he had issued to his staff prior to his death that I saw on FB.  The man was a class act, and will be missed.

Wow. That has to be a hard thing to do. I can't even imagine.

That's what I thought too, shows what kind of a man Mark was.

There will be a remembrance for Mark Voight at Sterling Lanes on Saturday, February 16th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Diane, fellow employees and all who wish to attend will be there.

I hope to get back from my tournament in Kalamazoo to attend.
