Managers: With a sad heart, I’m writing to inform you that long-time NOVA-CL manager and player Dick Heid passed away on Friday December 10, 2010.

For those of you who are new to the league, Dick founded his Braddock Road team around 1980, and then managed and played on the team until his illness forced him to retire about a year and a half ago.  Dick also ran the Winter session of NOVA-CL during the 2008-2009 season.  As Larry Osborne noted, “If you didn’t get to know Dick you missed out on knowing one of the good guys in this world.”

Visiting/calling  hours will be on Tuesday, Dec 14, from 2-4pm, and from 6-8pm at the Murphy Funeral Home at 1102 W Broad St in Falls Church.  The funeral mass will on Wednesday, Dec 15, at 10:00 AM, at St James Church at the corner of Spring and Broad St in Falls Church…I’m told only a couple of blocks from the Murphy Funeral Home.
