Two funeral services for Charlie Sifford
By Torleif Sorenson on 2/11/15
Among those attending the Cleveland-area funeral service for the late trailzblazing golf hero Charlie Sifford on Tuesday was Tim Warsinskey of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Warsinskey reported that the service, held at Church of the Savior in Cleveland Heights, Ohio was probably one Sifford himself would have appreciated:
[T]he service at times felt like friends in a clubhouse regaling one another with stories of golf prowess following a warm afternoon round. More than 200 mourners were able to mix laughter with the tears they also shared inside Church of the Savior's cavernous sanctuary on Lee Road.Among the correspondence Sifford's family has received since he passed away on February 3 was a letter, again reported by Warsinskey:
One of those triumphs was reflected in a letter sent to the family this week from a 10-year-old Alabama boy, Quincy Leonard:Mr. Sifford, that was more than 'good enough.'
