We are saddened to report that Richard H. Lamberton II of Portland, Oregon, passed away on January 20. He was 56 years old. A golf professional at Portland Golf Club since 1990, Rick’s passion was teaching and he gave thousands of lessons. He coached beginner golfers to some of the best players to come out of the state of Oregon, including Ben Crane, Gigi Stoll, the Harrington family and Dave Lebeck. Rick especially enjoyed working with kids and was instrumental in running the Portland GC Junior program for 15 + years. He watched hundreds of kids become wonderful players at the high school level and many went on to play collegiate golf.
