Andre and Cali were involved in a terrible accident last Friday while going to work.  Andre didn't make it and our hearts go out to his family and Cali.  Andre was only 28 years old and an avid club member for years.  He was still improving his Table Tennis game and enjoyed going to the best tournaments in the midwest.  Tournament players loved Andre and his competitive spirit and a little of the Russian that could come out when playing him.  We will all miss Andre and his positive attitude on life.  We have also lost our best dressed member with out a doubt.


Joey Cochran set up a go fund me account to help with the enormous medical expenses.

The funeral and visitation is this coming Friday and Saturday.  Thompson Lengacher & Yoder Funeral Home will be providing the arrangements.  Visitation on Friday will be from 2:00-8:00PM, Saturday 11:00AM-1:00PM.  The funeral will follow the Saturday visitation at 1:00PM.  The funeral home is located at 501 N Elkhart St, Wakarusa, IN 46573.
