In Memoriam - Past District Governor Obie L. Etheridge

Rotarians and friends in D5930, who knew Past District Governor Obie L. Etheridge, were deeply saddened by his death on January 24, 2017.  Our deepest sympathy and thoughts are with Obie's family. 
He joined the Rotary Club of Corpus Christi in 1968, serving as president in 1976-77. He was chosen as Governor of District 593 for Rotary year 1981-1982, an area with 45 clubs, stretching from El Campo to Rio Grande City. (Now District 5930.) The Rotary Presidential theme was World Understanding and Peace through Rotary. The District Governors must visit and meet with every club during the first half of their year. Obie declared that the missions of Rotary and Masonry are so much alike that he had to think twice to remember which he was visiting.
Obie will be affectionately remembered as a valuable friend and a truly ‘great Rotarian’.  Our thoughts are with his family.
Rest In Peace Past District Governor Obie
