Richard "Buzz" Crozier Passed Away This Past Saturday

This past Saturday (June June 22nd) I received a call from Deric who resides in the same building as Buzz.  He told me that Buzz passed away as a result of injuries from falling.  We had only just seen him the week previous, he was crossing Woodward with Marley in tow going into Campus Martius.  Always a soft-spoken gentleman, we will miss Buzz.  Regards to his wife, Timmi Crozier.

Very recent photo of Buzz and Marley.  This was about two or three weeks ago (early June).  Buzz came by to watch us.
He was always invited to participate, because we all know that the game of petanque is available for people of all stages of mobility.

Mark Weisgerber and Buzz Crozier.  Buzz had regained his strength and was playing standing for a season.

Buzz Crozier started playing petanque with the Detroit Petanque Club in 2009.  At the time, he was still in his chair.
You can also see Hal D'Darpini, Tom Cipollone,  Tim Clabuesch, and Eric Cetnar in this photo.  Eric passed away recently too.  I'm glad we had a chance to meet them.

Pizza party with the club.  Buzz thoughtfully provided the food for the party.  He was always very generous.
