Loss of a Good Friend

Post date: Oct 5, 2009 2:25:11 PM

We are sad to announce that a friend of Georgia Tech Rowing has recently passed away. Douglas Crucet was a great man with a kind heart who spent much time around the GT boathouse these past few years. You may remember him walking his dogs on the path or lending his tools and hands to fix up things around the yard. He was one of the most generous men the team has ever know. He was a mentor to the team and the coaches. He will be missed tremendously. Douglas donated the pairs boathouse and fours boathouse to the team (yes, there are multiple boathouses, sheds and shacks) as well as the six WinTech singles! There are no funeral services, but we know he will be missed and the team is creating a memorial for him.
